My {Word of the Year}

Inspired by Marci over at Everything Beautiful, I wanted to join in with Laurie from Tip Junkie's"Word of the Year" movement.


My word?


{To Hold Dear} my children who are growing up right before my eyes.

{To Hold Dear} my husband whom I fell in love with when our lives were simpler and less busy- and remember the love that drew us together when those crazy days seem so unavoidable.

{To Hold Dear} my parents, in-laws, brother, and brother and sister's in law, and all the nieces and nephews that grace our extended family. life is so busy that we can forget what and WHO we are deeply blessed with.

{To Hold Dear} the sacrificial gift of my Savior, and the blessing of a daily relationship with Him.

{To Care For Tenderly} these little souls who's hands I hold for so short a time. giving them the best that I have, letting tenderness infuse my every moment of interaction with them, whether it be folding their laundry, making their food, or kissing their owies.

{Nurture} their souls with my love and God's Love. fill their hearts, minds, and souls with Scripture and the Great Story of our Salvation.

{To Cling Fondly To} my memories of those who have passed, sweet memories of childhood, each moment with my husband and children, my Salvation, and the gift of Life that I have the privilege to live.

Cherish.

What will you Cherish this year?

Thoughtfully,

Megan
