My word of the year : 2009

another angle for 5/365, originally uploaded by jennifer.knutson.

In mid-December I started thinking about my word of the year and quickly realized it would be receive.  

When I thought of this word I thought of how I do not often receive compliments with ease, how I struggle with receiving criticism and how it is sometimes hard for me to receive love.  As I looked over the definitions below I realized I would like to receive guests into my home and I wondered what things I would like to accept as true or valid in 2009.
