So I've decided to follow the trend of many other bloggers and choose a word for 2013, a word to reflect on as the next chapter of my life book is written.  The word is Patience....patience with others (especially my children), patience with myself and patience with life and what it brings.  This past year has forced me to slow down and be more patient, especially with my health, but I still have work to do.

I liked so many quotes I found today, and I couldn't choose just one, so here are three.

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity. 

I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. 

The keys to patience are acceptance and faith. Accept things as they are, and look realistically at the world around you. Have faith in yourself and in the direction you have chosen.
