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:
the new crop of zinnias preparing to bloom;
finally figuring out how to use steel cut oats in a smoothie;
a fabulous book club discussion about A Tree Grows in Brooklyn;
that I don’t need to worry about running out of deep-cleaning or home improvement projects to avoid unpacking Mom boxes;
a family of ducks arriving at The Perfect Moment;
reconnecting/connecting with not just one, but two cousins from the English side of my family;
how addictive the Ancestry DNA site can be;
celebrating the voice that will always be Aretha;
the power of prayer, in its many forms;
how much joy avacado slices add to a sandwich; and
learning that not all butterflies have symmetrical wing designs.
What NOWS did you experience or witness this week?
