It's that time of the month again.

No, not that time of the month.

Although I do pay attention to those things, due to the fact that I have a tendency to procreate.

In case you hadn't noticed.

Back to the topic at hand.

As many of you know, several bloggy friends and I set out at the beginning of the year to focus on a word for the year, a word that would encompass our goals and vision for 2009. Mine is excellence. For this month, several of us decided to make mosaics that would be a visual representation of what we are learning through this process. My mosaic is posted above and here and here are the artistic renderings of several of my Word Bloggy Sisters!

Fly Girl put this gorgeous one together:

What brings me JOY? my daughter Hannah, good movies, great books, knowing that Craig is a caring father, Scout, twinkling Christmas lights, summer days before it gets too hot, blogging, taking pictures of Hannah, Akiane’s amazing art, Maggie, when a student ‘gets it’ and becomes a writer, morning light as it dances through the door, the smell of Biolage shampoo, doing things with Hannah, finding a hand-crafted necklace that has a meaning that resonates with you, being able to walk and run through the neighborhood, making new friends, eating good food, reading magazines (or looking at the pictures!), unexpected snow days, blue skies with windswept clouds, Autumn, scrapblogging, colorful flowers, driving my car, pampering ourselves, pedicures and summer sandals, my family, Starbucks frappucinos…. and so many other things I don’t have pictures of, like warm baths and cozy beds, a roaring fire on cold days, night sounds and falling stars…. The more I think about it, the more things I find that bring me joy!
And Mommy Victory had this to show and tell about discipline:

As I move toward a more disciplined way of life, these are some of the things I have been trying to incorporate more of. It is not an issue of right or wrong, but of more or less. I want to get more organized, do more cooking, cleaning and exercise and get a decent amount of sleep. I think it is a never ending journey, but one that is worth the trip.
And here's AVT Coach's on abundance:
