One Word : Intentional

I love the idea of claiming one word to focus on for a year rather than writing specific New Year's resolutions.
(see here and here)
Mine this year was easy to decide on: Intentional.
Life is just going by way too quickly.
We've been married six and a half years already,
wow that's gone by fast!
Tonight we're going to a preschool open house for my baby girl,
how did that happen?
I've been a stay at home mom for 2.5 years already,
I can't believe its been that long.
I want to slow down. I want to take it all in. I don't want to miss a thing because I was moving too fast and working too hard towards the next goal or item on the calendar.
Here's a few items I'm going to try to be
more intentional about during 2010:But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does.
James 1:25 (NIV)
