my word for 2013

this word found me.
this year my word references what i am
allowing/receiving/thanking.

i am a lil' tired from a lot of making,
blissfully so.
so i simply open up my palms
for renewal.

Held. Yup. Good one. May it serve you well for the year at hand and beyond.

May you be held with all the fluttering leaves wrapping rainbows and bowing boughs in renewal.

Beautiful as always, Rachel!

I just finished reading through your book--it was a Christmas gift! The picture and phrase-- from your book--that speaks most to me now is: "i am saying yes to all that's best."

I really enjoyed what you put together--a virtual hug from me to you, in celebration of your book's creation and your word for the year.

I love to think of you, this beautiful ball of magnificent energy, being held in sweet arms of stillness to renew. Love it.
Happy New Year, Awesome One !

I love your choice. I'm inspired to choose a word soon myself. I've been waiting for it to come to me but I may have to take more action and just choose.

Jennifer Richardson said...

oh, you are SO held
and just hearing your word
reminds me of the arms
snug around me
safe
calm
warm
and I relax a little more
into their care.
much, much thanks for the
beautiful share,
Jennifer

Oh Racel, I just knew I could rely on you to have the most poignant word. You hold us all so dearly on your blog and it's time for you to be held. :) Thankyou for your wonderful book, it was a happily received christmas present form myself to my middle daughter. I know she'll enjoy it as I do.xx

Jess said...

Sorry about typo! I meant to write 'Rachel'. Oh and by the way you can see a photo of the said daughter on my new blog post. She's the one with the tatoos singing along to her brother's guitar.xx
