one little word

I have been pondering my One Little Word for the year and here are my favorites:
Pray
Nurture
Positive
Purpose
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 joy.......by 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???
