a week of NOWS ~ #19

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:

a bishop leading us in a Beatles sing-a-long from the pulpit;

the gift of being trusted;

listening the birds singing in the morning;;

witnessing new lavender plants beginning to grow;

the scent of roses grown with love;

a gentle celebration of the 645th anniversary of Julian of Norwich’s Showings;

the delight of a small child ‘directing’ re-routed traffic (from a very safe distance);

how contageous a glimmer of hope can be;

watching a squirrel climb back up a tree, with an acorn in its mouth;

that first bite of the first vidalia pie of the season; and

the moment I realized I’m genuinely not dreading The First Mother’s Day. I’m grateFULL.

What NOWS did you experience this week?

  1. something tells me there were still tears cause they are spelling errors but I am thinking of the smells that went with the vidilia pie and chocolate chip cookies!
