When I first read about choosing a Word for the Year, I thought it was a little odd or confining.  I am not one to make New Year's resolutions, so this word seemed like a different resolution.  Yet, this Word of the Year concept was one I kept running into.

I kept thinking, "No, I am working on too much to confine myself to one word and for a year."  Then, I realized there was a simple word that embodied all the areas which I needed to work on: Consistent.

Webster's definition of consistent is a person, behavior or process unchanging in achievement or effect over a period of time. 

That is what I want to be! 

A parent who is consistent in my love and support, expectations, standards and reactions.

A homeschool teacher who is consistent not only in the execution of my lessons and philosophy, but in the standards and availability of assistance.

A homemaker who cheerfully does those daily chores with great love.

A wife who makes time for our relationship and value it above all others. 

A woman who nourishes my soul with reading and writing, improves myself with exercise, and makes time for the laughter and blessings of friends. 

In all of these areas, I will try to be consistent.
