What's the Word?

Some of my favorite blogs have picked a word of the year. 
Words are definitely something to live by, right? 
 I really don't believe much in New Year's resolutions. 
I figure if you want to change something,
why are you waiting for the New Year. 
Words have a great meaning, once they are
written or spoken they are quite powerful. 
Let's just say that the last few weeks have been a stressful time. 
One of my family members has needed me more than blogging,
my favorite sewing or handwork project
and I have come to the realization of what my
word of the year is.....
Yes, I know what you are thinking.
What an odd word?
I do agree, it is a bit strange.
But as my life continues to change and
evolve, I want to be the cream.
The individual that rises to the top. 
During the last couple week, I have
realized who has gone above and beyond
what was expected of them.  The best of the best or
the CREAM!!
And then there has been the others
who have just chose to do nothing
or have sat idly by. 
I, myself have tried to be the
cream, but there have been times that
I have complained or have not been
the person I strive to be.
So, This is why I choose my word,
Strange as it might be! 
My sister found a quote which
resonates with my word of 2014.
I give more of myself to others than anyone expects.
I am unsure who said it
but they are words to live by.
P.S.  I hope you join me on the 20th when I share my Kona Blog
Hop project.  I can't wait to get back to my sewing machine.  :)
Pin It Now!

  7. Excellent word, and it is hard when you give so much to others and are chided or derided as others sit by and they are usually the ones being difficult and are "just too busy". So yeah you can get peckish about it too. That is when I say a little prayer for grace. When the hubby is home I tell him what I really wanted to say though. :D
