My “word” for 2012 is wOw!
wOw! is one of those fabulous words that fits positive, negative and neutral situations. It’s a word we can use when no other will work. Over this next year of Sundays, I’m going to share some wOw!moments from the previous week. By December 31, 2012, I’ll have shared 2012 wOw! moments.

My daughter in law gets to buy a few maternity outfits!
Re-learning that moving is HARD, especially with a nursing 5-month-old and a 2 1/2 year old.
(My daughter and her husband moved from Greensboro to High Point. I will NEVER move again–I will die in my cluttered home. I hope.)
Witnessing the welcoming reception of some of Mark’s fish artworks to their new home at the “Waypoint”, a wonderful seafood restaurant in Williamsburg, VA; and THEN having an amazing dinner there with my husband and a truly cherished friend.
reading theory of preservation for school
Rushing to get my morning walk in between periodic rainfall, I neared the end in a light shower, looked to my left and in the first spot I would have been able to see it, got nearly dropped to my knees at the sight of a double rainbow! As I stood in “awesome wonder” a man in a passing van stuck his head out the window & yelled, “Pretty ain’t it?!” A moment of pure joy & a stranger sharing it.
Penny, YAY for Lara (and all who love her);
Amma, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, blessin’s all over ALL involved;
Mary Louise, since I’m honored to have one of Mark’s fish artworks in my home, I cheer this LOUDLY;
jb, good luck with that ;); and
Wanda, i LOVE imagining that sighting and encounter.
