My friend Barb (The Everyday Home) asked this on Facebook…What one word describes your 2015?
I started thinking…
We had some surprises this year, the biggest was Mike’s infection in his spine and his DVT. The whole health scare came out of nowhere and like health issues tend to do, it quickly rearranged our priorities.
What I was impressed with during our time in the hospital and in the weeks that followed was
How much I love Mike. How much he loves me. But more than anything, how much God loves the both of us.
The whole situation gave me the invaluable opportunity to stop and think through our life together. Some of you know this, but when the life of someone you love is threatened, moments become razor sharp. All the times we laughed, all the struggles, the passionate disagreements, even the tears…those moments made up our life together. And when I boiled it all down…the word I was left with, was love.
I asked Mike to describe his year with one word. After a little thought, he said “mercy“. Why?
“God was so merciful to us by allowing me to fully recover.”
What about you…what one word would describe your 2015?
If you’d like to print this out and add your word…
Sending love my friends…xo
