My word for 2018 is focus, which requires paying attention to the moment – the now. So, this year, I’ll be taking note of experiences I may have missed, without focus. Many may seem to be BGO’s ( blinding glimpses of the obvious), but hey, I might have missed them.
Here’s this week of NOWS:
stopping my car so three fawn could (veryyyy slowly) cross the street and check out my car;
witnessing the power of strong women;
experiencing unspoken understanding;
Bloss allowing me to rub her stomach for twenty uninterrupted minutes;
watching a heron watch me;
how holding another human’s hand is healing on so many levels;
watching someone I love enjoy my cooking;
the joy of a book club that actually discusses books;
realizing that after almost 20 years, creating Cheap Therapy is still cheap therapy;
the overwhelming gratitude I felt for my parents, after seeing their new ‘combined headstone’ (Dad’s is on one side and Mom’s on the other. That’s how they roll at the New Bern National Cemetery.);
how cleaning out Mom’s storage unit (with the massive help of family and friends) wasn’t nearly as grievous as I expected; and
understanding that opening all of those boxes may be.
What nows did you experience this week?
