When I read Stacey’s post yesterday about coming up with a word for the new year my first thought was how will I ever come up with a word that is good enough? The first unconscious thought to enter my mind was the word rejoice. I had only positive feelings about embracing that word. 2012 year ended with overwhelming sadness that has left an indelible mark on many of us. The outpouring of love across the world has been amazing. I have a family member who is going through a lot of turmoil. As a result, there is a lot of negativity that surrounds her. I am continually trying to remain upbeat, but it can be a struggle.

Rejoice will give me a healthy focus and a goal for the new year.
