2011 One Little Word

Ali Edwards has posted her annual One Little Word.  I've chosen a word each year to help me define and reach my goal for the upcoming year.  Last year it was Determined:

2009 One Little Word

I'm excited about the direction my Word, Time, is taking me in 2011.

TIME to worship God
TIME for Jimmy
TIME for friends
TIME to take care of Me
Less TIME worrying & more TIME trusting God
TIME to Celebrate Life
TIME for my creative expression

I'm still working on my book and hope to finish it by Monday!  Here is one of the pages for my mini-book:

Along with One Little Word I was challenged by Cheryl Waters, Lead Fiskateer (Fiskars) to set goals for the next10 years.  This led me to look into who I want to become in the long run.  It will be hard and I hope my One Little Word will help me each year to fulfill my 10 year goals.

The front of the tag is my topic and my goals are on the back of the tags.  This was truly a challenge to think that far ahead. 

Here are the links for Cheryl's challenge.  It is well worth the journey!
