It has been a little more difficult than I had thought it would be to pick a word for 2014. Last year's came rather easily, but this year's...not so much. I have been thinking about it for a while. I talked it over with my husband and explained how no matter what word I came up with, it all boiled back down to faith. He agreed. So he didn't help too much.
Then yesterday, after I wrote my post wrapping up 2013's word, it came to me. Better. I want to do better in 2014. I struggle with wanting to do everything perfectly (and therefore not trying if I know I can't get it done right!) when all I really have to do is the best I can. So, my goal is to do better this year. Be a better wife, a better mom, a better friend, daughter, Christian, person. I don't have to be perfect. I can't be. But I can be better than I am right now.
