ONE little WORD!!

I know...it has taken me FOREVER to share my OLW.  
I originally had a different word but it wasn't working for me.  

My OLW = positive

Thanks to my mom for helping me choose this word.  A couple of months back it was Whoopi Goldberg's birthday and I happened to catch the end of the View.  She said something about how she is grateful to be here another year.   Now, I always seem to get a little bummed on New Year's, my kids' birthdays and my birthday.  I hate thinking about how fast the time is going and how my babies are growing.  But Whoopi made me realize that it is more than being bummed it is being grateful to be here.  

So I want to be positive....
about enjoying each milestone (years passing)
about losing weight and taking care of myself
about others even when they aren't positive
 etc., etc, etc.








Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy being positive,

  14. I love, love, love this layout Leslie!! It's a great word you picked too. I too used to be sad about another year flying by with my family growing so fast. But, as you age you finally realize that you are grateful to be alive, grateful to be here another year with your grandchildren, etc...I'm glad that you learned this early in life because i will make life much better in the long run. Hugs, Brenda
