one little word

I have been pondering my One Little Word for the year and here are my favorites:
I think the one that really captures what I want from this year is Nurture. I want to nurture my family by spending more quality time together (less time in front of the television, more time outside or reading stories together). 
I want to nurture my marriage by being proactive and planning more date nights and maybe even some weekend get-aways this year.
I want to nurture my family by making our home a safe, comfortable, welcoming environment and by cooking more healthy meals this year. 
I want to nurture my friendships by making them a priority this year.....I have really let this area of my life fall to the back burner. I guess that is part of having a new born, but it's also just a result of me being lazy and complacent in my friendships. I really want to put more time and effort into my friends this year and hopefully even make some new ones along the way. Johnny and I are praying for a "couple" friendship to come into our lives. 
I also want to nurture myself by doing the things that bring me spending time creating and learning more about photography, reading great books, traveling, and spending time with The Lord.
I want to be patient with myself and the goals I have set this year. Instead of racing to check things off my list, I want to look at this year as a time to nurture those parts of my life that need attention and loving care.
I'm curious, what is your One Little Word this year???
