there is a challenge out there for scrapbookers, to choose a word, a single word, that sums up what you want for yourself in 2007. after much pondering and lots of hemming and hawing-i chose the perfect word for me-LEAP! i want to leap into my life-not that i have been resting on my laurels, but to make a conscience effort to really LEAP.stick my neck out, try new things, be present in as many moments as i can. that is what i want for me in 2007. what about all of you out there. i would love to hear from you what word you would choose. i find the entire exercise fascinating-as i do all of you, so take a leap of faith and let me know your word.
on to other news. about a year ago, maybe longer, miranda sent some artwork into one of her favorite comic books, it has been so long that i really hadn't thought about it in a really long time. so friday night she went to a lacrosse game with her friend stacy and got home about 10:30. she notices that she recieved a new teen titans comic in the mail and as always rips it open. also, as always she checks the fan mail section,where kids send in letters and artwork. she says hey that looks kinda like something i drew-hey wait that is something i drew!!!! so how KEWL is that-miranda has been published! can i just tell you how much that girl RAWKS!!! i am telling you, she is amazing in so many ways-i learn from her everyday. i never understood that when parents said that they learn from their kids, now i totally get it! so cool.
we have little boy in our family who could really use some prayers and positive vibes. his name is jackson and he is hospitalized in virginia. his daddy is fighting for us in iraq and his mommy is bravely holding it all together back home, she has her hands FULL! jackson is 3 months old and his big sister savannah is a year. daddy was flown home from iraq to be with his family. so, i guess, i am really asking for prayers for that entire little family. clifton, robin, savannah, jackson, big love sent to you from arizona.
i am looking forward to hearing from you and very curious what words you will chose for yourselves.
