JOURNALING for 2009' !!!

First off, I want to say a "special Thank you" for all the sweet well-wishes
for my Birthday.. It really meant a lot to me.. ;)
My husband and I went to Mariposa, Ca on my Birthday.. It is on the way to Yosemite
and about one hour from our home. It was very wintry and stormy.. but beautiful. I had
wanted to take pictures because it is such a fun, gold-rush like town but, it was raining too hard.
We had a nice time and good meal at "El Cid" a mexican restaurant in Oakhurst.. Very good!!
It was just nice to get away and enjoy some together time..

This is a Composition book I bought at the Dollar store which I fixed up with vintage wallpapers, lace, buttons, bling, ribbons, chipboard letters, vintage flowers.. etc. all stuff was purchased at yard sales all for one dollar.. I try to use what I already have.. I put the vintage wallpapers on the inside and back inside cover.. I plan to use this for journaling ...

I have seen on some websites that for the Year 2009' picking a WORD and trying to live by it
and journal about it etc.. MY WORD IS: " CHANGE" !!!
"CHANGE IS THE ESSENCE OF LIFE, BE WILLING TO SURRENDER WHAT YOU ARE, FOR WHAT YOU COULD BECOME".
"NOTHING IS AS CONSTANT AS CHANGE".... quoted by Thomas S. Monson... "Find "Joy"
in the Journey"...
SO, this year I will focus on "Change".. and "ENJOYING THE JOURNEY"!!!

Fantastic word! Change is always such a hard one for me, but I have found the older I get, the easier it is to accept.

Change is a good word. We don't always associate it with the postive, and we should! Good job on your journa, and I'm glad you had a nice birthday.
