One Little Word for 2012

I came across this post from Third Grade Bookworm first and this really got me thinking. I am a true fan of my husband bringing home ONE perfect flower than a dozen or two of them. I love one soft tender kiss or smile from my boys or husband. One of my wedding songs was Alison Krauss - When You Say Nothing At All.  I think if you take in the small things it'll make the biggest impact, because if you can cherish the small you can cherish anything. Maybe that is another reason I love the smallest of people, children.

If you have read, One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, you know she is thankful for the smallest things. She is very poetic in her writings.

So when I reflect on 2012 and think about what one word I can choose to describe this year, Faith. From it defines faith as one with confidence; belief without proof. It's a feeling, it's the ONE, and it’s the knowing in your heart.

I want 2012 Faith in all forms of it, selfless faith, taking a leap of faith. By choosing faith it encompasses everything but most of all, loving God and knowing that He will bring what is needed of me in 2012. He has given me so much and I rarely sit back and let Him truly take over. I also need to be still (I have a hard time doing that, but I am sure I am not the only one out there in Blog World).

What is your ONE word for 2012? Like Ali posted, "The main thing to remember is that this is your word. It’s not for your child, parent, partner, spouse, sister, etc."

Comment back, I'd love to hear your One Word for 2012!
