hope springs eternal

hope -- my word of choice for 2010.

over at journaling junkie, we were to choose our word for 2010 and reflect on that word and how that will play a part in your life for the year.

and thus, my choice is HOPE as it is the one thing we can never loose in our life. here's my journal on why i chose the word:

"A lot has happened in our lives, good and bad. Still we moved forward as each day passes. These experiences have made us stronger and more resilient. Our lives are not perfect but it's ideal. It's the life we have somehow wished for. We are almost complete, almost. Every year we can only look forward to our faith, our hope that we will soon be completed. This coming year, we will continue hoping, praying for total completeness for our family. (12-31-09)"

materials used:  cardstock - american crafts, ki memories (used as mask), bazzill; patterned paper - scenic route; journal pad - fancy pants; chipboard - scenic route; alpha - american crafts, ek success;  glimmer mist - tattered angels; paint - kaiser carft; glitter - pink paislee; brads - making memories; trim - fancy pants; rub-ons; felt; ink
