Laura Lippman is a writer I admire.
Additionally, she's a woman I admire.
And each year she reminds me, and others, by her own example, to choose a one-word resolution for the new year.
Reading the words that others have chosen is always something I look forward to and enjoy.
And it's always a bit of a challenge for me to come up with a word that I might actually be able to observe and follow.
My word for 2019 is savor.
I want to try to remember to savor the good things in my life.
While I will not stop fighting and speaking out against the things I do not savor, I want to be more respectful to the goodness I am blessed with.
Here's wishing you all a Happy New Year!
