This is the second week for the Focus on Life photo challenge. This weeks prompt is "My Word". I thought long and hard and decided to make BALANCE my word for 2013.
bal·ance[bal-uh ns] Show IPA noun, verb, bal·anced, bal·anc·ing.
a state of equilibrium or equipoise; equal distribution of weight, amount, etc.

a state of bodily equilibrium: He lost his balance and fell down the stairs.
an instrument for determining weight, typically by the equilibrium of a bar with a fulcrum at thecenter, from each end of which is suspended a scale or pan, one holding an object of known weight,and the other holding the object to be weighed.
Number 3 of the definition is my goal for this year. I want to obtain Balance in many ways. I would love to better balance my time between family and friends, housework and hobbies, happiness and sadness. I chose a picture from my archives that I though best represented my word. Have a great week.
