it's time to . . .
- care for tenderly; nurture
- show great tenderness for; treasure
- protect and care for (someone) lovingly
- hold (something) dear
- feel or show great love for (someone or something)
- cling fondly or inveterately to
- remember or hold in a deeply felt way
- entertain or harbor in the mind deeply and resolutely
to me, cherish is active, deliberate, intentional. i'm looking forward to discovering who and what and how i will cherish this year.
