The posts where people choose one word to represent their yearly theme.
I’ve always thought those were a neat idea, but the perfectionist in me has trouble picking just one word.
How can one word stand for everything I want to do?
As I think back on 2012, I wonder if I could summarize it in one word.
2012 was definitely a busy year and full of many changes. I started this new blog (and moved everything from my old blog here) right at the end of 2011.
Then I immediately became too busy to blog.
Not a very good strategy for building a successful blog. Maybe this year should be the year of Blogging?
Maybe Patience should be my word? Of course I’ve always heard people jokingly say to never pray for patience because God will give you something that helps you work on it. I don’t think I want to risk that, so I’m going to keep thinking.
Those do sound great, but my reality has not changed. I still homeschool 5 children and work part-time from home. I need to work towards those things for sure, but for the theme of the year? No.
As I think back over 2012, I realize that something was missing last year. It is something very important. It is something I need to regain. I’m honestly not sure how to even do it, but it’s going to be my word for 2013.
My word is JOY!
