a new year. praying this year the thoughts I have every year will stick more than the previous year. so, without further ado…
In 2010, I want to:
spend more time focusing on our marriage.
focus more on BJ and all of his great qualities and become a better wife for him
get to know my kids better, spend more quality time with them and do the things most important to them individually
so that means more time getting to know Zoe’s heart
more time cuddling with Judah
more one on one time with Shiloh
more time enjoying every moment as Olive grows up way too quickly
Spend more time making & keeping our family traditions
carefree time outside together, enjoying life
making our homeschool flow and enjoy it more than I worry about it being “perfect”
be grateful for more time and savor this time living by my family
and while spending time with my family, have a lot of fun doing it
find beauty in the small moments instead of picking apart everything that isn’t just right
and even save pictures I would normally delete because they aren’t completely in focus–because it captures a moment I’ll someday miss desperately.
get some projects done around the house I’ve been putting off for awhile
be a more involved, more engaged wife & mom, friend, daughter & sister.
more like Christ.
memorize more scripture, read more books, listen to more music, keep on top of things that matter to me, spend more quality time with friends & family, less time on the computer and more time playing games…the list goes on & on.
most of all, be more content and grateful for what is right in front of me.
and maybe, just maybe I’ll update this blog and my website more. But friends, THAT is at the very bottom of my list.
