One Word for 2014

Choosing just one word to focus on for the new year has been challenging.
I have been using the word “fake” a lot lately, much to Kyle’s displeasure. As in, “This or that is fake,” “I don’t want to be fake.” I have mostly used it in a negative context, and didn’t think I needed to concentrate on that baggage all year, though I did rip it from the cover of an IEEE (engineering) magazine and pin it to my new bulletin board. 😉
My poor family…

Moving right along.The word for the year is:


Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

All for the Lord, time in prayer, in His Word ( through personal reading, family reading, reading with Kyle and participating in Good Morning Girls), in serving, and especially trusting.

All for Kyle, being loving, trustworthy in what I have to do for the family–organization, meal planning and homeschooling, and being an interesting, fun sidekick and navigator on life’s adventures, both in real life at home and on the road.

All for my children, Isaac, John, Paul, Luke, Rachel and Adam–leading by patient example, being loving and fun, listening to their needs, training and teaching.

All for my parents, finishing photo projects, visiting more, serving, writing more notes.

All for my neighbors, we have some great ones, some we don’t know and some new ones.

All for my friends, the old, the newer and hopefully the new.

All for me, exercise, writing, reading, creative pursuits.

New Year’s Eve with my lovies and the Legos Kyle’s boss gave him at December’s meet-up. Thank you, Mr. Satish!!


Me and them again, in July, on our way from Glen Allen to Virginia Beach.

Me and all of my favorites on July 4.
