Every year I love to pick out a word that I will focus on the following year instead of making resolutions.
This is not to say that I don’t make small goals but more than anything my goal is to pick a word that I will use as a theme for my year! In church, we do the same and this year the word is worship! Worshipping God wholeheartedly and being intentional, and in defining worship I found my word for the year.
To be honest, I actually had to think about my word a lot this time around!
Last year was a very testing year for our family and I’m happy to say our process ended with the best possible outcome, but the process almost broke me!
It shook me to the core and then some. Seeing my child go through test after test and everything coming back as an issue shattered my heart to finally getting the dread words that my child had a tumor.
At that moment all I wanted was to roll into a little ball and cry, pretty sure I did that too, but something my husband said afterward gave me the ability to explain my feelings at that moment!
He said I just wanted to be home cutting the grass with you guys there playing, inside or outside, but I just wanted all of us to be home!
That feeling of having something that was pretty impossible yet something so simple. Something we took for granted the year before. You know the 2020 lockdown, that all I’m saying about that!
But we took it for granted just as we do many things in our life!
So this year I chose the word Intentional.
I want my life to be “homey” if that makes sense.
I want us to enjoy every moment possible and enjoy us, the little family we prayed for!
So this year I will be intentional, with everything I do, and that means writing in this space too!
This space has allowed me to do so much and to meet so many amazing people and I never want to take this for granted.
I never want to take you, for granted!
For showing up, for taking time out of your precious day to read my thoughts!
Thank you so much!
