i know, i'm a bit late...

So New Years was so nineteen days ago, right?  Well, this isn't about my resolutions cuz I didn't really make any, though I do so want to be tanner.  I dream big, I know.  This is about my word of the year.  I did this last year - you can read about it here.  I've taken this long because I've been trying to come up with a more profound word.  Nothing is coming to mind, so I guess that must mean something.  This year, I just want to be better.  I want to be a better wife.  A better mother. Better to my body.  A better sister, friend, photographer, cook, gardener, etc.  That sounds like a tall order but I'm only looking for incremental growth in all those areas.  OK, maybe not incremental.  Measurable.  Steady.  I'm not trying to become a world-class anything.  Just better.  Maybe that's not a big enough thing, but that's what's in my heart right now.  I want to make each day better because I'm trying just that little bit extra.  I want to do my part and maybe a little bit more.  I want to be more conscientious of how I handle each moment.

Did you make a resolution?  Do you keep your resolutions?  Have you (eek!) broken your resolution already?
