a week of NOWS ~ # 43

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:

realizing that there are less than ten weeks left in this year;

the healing power of away-time;

the healing power of home-time;

how, even disappointing news can be welcome, as a plan of action;

unexpected and much nourishment from a beloved;

how marvelous Mondays can be;

the simple pleasure of catching-up on The Voice;

finding a new (to me) couch and chair;

reconnecting with Daddy’s desk;

the gift of toilet paper, paper towels, and cleaning supplies, from ‘angels unaware’;

the grateFULL presence I felt from the Communion of Saints (especially those from LKW Presbyterian Church!) on All Saints Day;

the joyFULL presence I felt of my mom, dad, and sister on All Souls Day;

the new TV series Homecoming;

honoring the wounded and the wounded healers;

the profound power of a group of faithFULL women;

homemade soup and bread;

storytelling;

storylistening; and

naming, embracing, and claiming the gifts of The Ordinary.

What NOWS did you witness or experience this week?
