No...I changed my mind- or rather God changed it for me. I was looking for my word and thought that "refine" was mine for this year but God put a different one in my heart that feels right. He told me that my word needed to be "focus". It is defined as " a central point, as of attraction, attention or activity...the primary center...the point of origin". I feel like I tend to lose my focus, get distracted by things around me, and feel unsettled. But I want to focus on what is important rather than what is urgent at the time. FOCUS
I am an occupational therapist working with special needs children in schools. I have been working for Sparta Area Schools for about 20 years and worked in other districts prior to that. I received my undergraduate degree and my graduate degree from Western Michigan University. I have three sons and four dogs that take lots of my time and attentions. During my "free" time, I like to read, make jewelry, knit and do a little sewing (and I obviously read way too many blogs).
