I've been thinking about my word for 2014 for a couple of weeks now.

Three words kept bouncing around:


There wasn't a particular order and sometimes I would completely forget one of them and have to rack my brain for the missing word.

Extend was always there.

When I think of the word I picture my hands stretching out from my body and my fingers spreading wide - expanding, ready to embrace. 

I want to extend, reach out to friends I haven't seen for some time, even though we live in the same city.

I want to extend, explore areas of creativity that I've shut down in the past.

I want to extend, stretch my comfort zone.

This year I want to always be extending my hands, reaching out for and with grace and mercy.
