One of my blogging friends, Marcia, always does a ‘Word of the Year’. For example, last year, she chose the word Create. Throughout the year, she updated her blog about how she was living her word, and how she applied it to many areas of her life. Creating not just with her hands, but also things like memories, stronger relationships, and more.
I’ve thought about doing one myself for awhile. I couldn’t think of one last January that felt right and let it go. I’ve been stewing on it for a while for this year because I had hoped to have it narrowed down by the first. Well here it is, almost February, and I’ve only got a notion of what I want it to be.
I want something that means to stop and enjoy and just relish in the moment. I don’t want to wish away the days- like, I need to remember that the newborn sleepless nights only last for so long, and to treasure him while he’s this small. I want to appreciate the twins and their three year old curiosity when they want to stop and check something out, and not rush them. I want to try to have more patience when listening to little girl babbles, and try to keep in mind that soon it will be about boys and that they probably won’t even want to talk to me.
So what word do I choose?
I’m leaning towards Treasure right now- do any of you have another suggestion?
