And just to finish off the post, I thought I would share my 'poster child' for my #oneword focus this year. I have chosen the word 'gracious'. I have always wished that characteristic came naturally to me, and now I am going to work on developing it.
The woman in the picture above is Ruby Olson Haight. She and her husband David B. Haight, of the quorum of the 12 apostles in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to which I belong, both passed away in 2004. I had the opportunity to meet Ruby on several occasions and always found her to be perfectly gracious. Such a lovely woman, just seeing her picture, this one taken the year she was married, reminds me to slow down, and take care of those around me. Thanks for you amazing example Ruby!
Best wishes to you all as you strive to be a better you in the coming year.
