Do you have a word that defines you or your life?

I was complimenting a patient on her beautiful silver bracelet-when she showed me that it had words and phrases of blessings and gratitude's. It was given to her from a friend, to remind her of her blessings in life, and her word in life. Blessed.

Isn't that simple? One little word and it can completely change your attitude. Or at least it changes mine.

We all have so many things to be grateful for, when we look for them.

Of course, now I also want to pick a word for me. I like serene and sparkling, but they don't have the same impact as blessed. I will have to keep thinking of words that reflect everything that I am, do and have.

Which brings me to the thought that once in grade 7, we had to describe our classmates with a word, and for some reason, I think we had to compare to a fabric (Why, oh why?). A boy in my class said I was like velvet. I won't get into any reasons of why he thought this because it was utterly embarrassing at the time, but today, I do like the idea of being like velvet.

So I will be serene, sparkling, and like velvet. Does that describe me?
