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 sermon that powerfully and positively shifted my focus;
that, after more than 20 years, not much seems real until I tell Tom;
the grace of gut-level conversation, especially when it includes laughter;
the hope of freshly-installed sheetrock;
a life-changing gift from dear friends;
that CBD oil continues to enhance 14 1/2 -year-old Blossom’s life;
how white vinegar and/or baking soda will clean almost anything;
the BEST turkey I’ve ever eaten (apple-smoked on Tom’s Big Green Egg);
the healing impact of chosing gifts from my late sister, to wear to her husband’s funeral;
spotting a gardenia bush in bloom in November;
the beloved humans, heron-in-flight, and vocal ducks who attended my brother-in-law’s funeral;
witnessing two heartbroken brothers hug;
witnessing an honor guard folding the American flag; and
that hope and love really do ‘bat last’.
What NOWS did you experience or witness this week?
