The idea of having a word of the year has always been intriguing to me. A word to help define goals and activities for the year. Last year was a very eventful year for our family, so maybe eventful would have been a good word for last year. But this year I have had my word picked out for some time.
I feel like time is slipping away sometimes. I love having my little ones close by me and want them to know they are loved unconditionally, here in my arms. So this year my word is deliberate. I want my family to know that my actions and choices this year are deliberate--I want them to know that I've done the little things on purpose. I've made a choice to be with my family more and outside influences less. I want them to remember me WITH them, not sitting at a computer BY them.
Yes, I know January is half way over, but I have been deliberately spending more time with my kiddos. Don't worry I've been crafting away too, so once I can get the pictures off my computer that decided to crash I will share some things I gifted for Christmas.
