…I hope I’m not the only one who was surprised to find that the last time I posted about my 2012 one little word – shine – was june 17. oh my. really?! oh my yes.
the good news (for me at least) is that I kept up with ali’s videos in my journal and made notes about each prompt. love that the thoughts I’ve recorded are “current” even though the pages weren’t created until months after [note to self – don’t let this set a precedent!]
I picked up photos from costco last night…the last piece to pull together these last SIX (yikes, six?? really, yes!!) prompts…and today I trimmed and inked and stapled. and now it’s done. well, my album pages anyway. more than any word I’ve chosen, this is a word that’s going to stay with me. for all the good things it’s taught me…and brought me.
the soundtrack. july’s prompt. it took me almost the whole month to find six lyrics to supplement the three bible verses. regular readers know I love amazing grace, and billy joel and lady antebellum so really, it was only three “new”…thanks to zumba and XM highway for those last three!
…the prayer shawl ministry is on my goals for 2013. I really (really) want to make that happen this year!
and now to october – another nine photo spread. the first one – can you make out the cross between the leaves? – is the only one I took on purpose for this project. the others…I think my october was a great canvas.
and finally december. closing thoughts. I wrote these words last weekend. and experienced that same surprised delight gratitude wonder all over again.
my word for 2013 is grace. I look forward to seeing where that it takes me. I hope it’s as meaningful as this one.

Congratulations on wrapping your OLW 2012 album. Truly you have shone! Looking fwd to 2013's word.Cheers~
thank you! this album came together nicely and I love that this year's word gets added right along with the last two. Ali's classes have proved amazing for sure!
You really did shine in 2012. I can't wait to see how grace impacts your life in 2013.
🙂 I hope I can channel Grace Kelly more!
Congratulations Mary! What a wonderful keepsake, and you will continue to shine on!
ah thank you! yes, the album is nice, but the lasting impact is the truly special part!
you did far better on this than i did, i may just not be "there" yet. maybe i'll be inspired by your 2013 word, it's a good one!
