HOME is such a vague word when choosing a word to describe your focus for the year, right? Yet, it says so much to me — that one little word.
My focus in 2016 is a continuation from a desire planted within me in late 2014. I want to be at home with my son for so many reasons.
I want to be the one to feed him breakfast.
I want to be the one to encourage his speech development. He has apraxia.
I want to be the one to decide what he is taught.
I want to be the one to enjoy his smiles and laughter.
I want to be the one to hold him when he’s sick.
I want to be the one to share an afternoon story with him. We both love, love, love books.
It’s so hard to accomplish any of this while I am at an office job more than 8 hours a day and he’s with a sitter. I’m thankful that he is in our home with his grandma during the day, but that won’t always be an option.
So, my one word is HOME because I have every intention of coming home. This is my desire, my pursuit, my goal for 2016. I do have other goals in place for 2016, but this is the big one. My other goals actually play a hand in making this one goal happen.
Join me in 2016 as I share the journey I’ve already taken (progress made!) and what happens next.
Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home.
Lo, children are a heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
