One Little Word | 2017

My {our} word for 2017 came upon me late in the day,
after a chat with my best friend about what it may be.
She told me what hers might be, but I confess to having forgotten what she said ...
 I looked at Ali's post and then read the comments her readers had left.
And there it was ... nourish.
Verb: to feed; to furnish with food; to support; to help forward the growth of
in any way; to allow to grow; to bring up; to cherish.

Do you have a word for the coming year?

What a great choice. It can be interpreted in so many aspects of your life. I don't do One Little Word, but I love seeing the words that others choose.

I think nourish will be a great word for you this year. I have chosen Connect. Fortunately I had chosen it before Ali announced her word otherwise I might have changed it

I smiled when I saw this, Ruth, because nothing came to me in December about a word for 2017. Then when I woke up on the first of January, it was right there in my head. Within half-an-hour, I had enrolled in Ali's class - with Nourish :). looking forward to journeying alongside you this year.

A perfect word for you (& family). I have not had any particular word come to me.

Great word! I chose ACTIVE for this year.

First off I want to thank you for your comment on my blog today! It is fun to share my excitement with my blog friends and I am happy to get to work along Sian for the first time :) Second, your OLW is very positive and I like it... I don't do much with mine but I picked "Practice" for this year, as in practice kindness, practice gratitude, practice giving, practice self-care, well you get the idea!
Best wishes for the New Year!

New Year Greetings from Stockholm! I have chosen 'Thrive' this year as a way to remind myself to grow and thrive in all my roles: teacher, woman, wife, mother at the same time as I try to help my students and family thrive. I also just want to thank you for many interesting blog updates over the years. I started reading your blog quite a while ago through your December Daily project, which you had uploaded onto Ali Edwards' site. It too is one of my scrapbooking favorite projects of the year.
