1489 – 1540 in a year of 2012 wOws!

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.   

I hope you’ll have spotted (and maybe even shared) close to that, too.

  1. At first I thought you said how much of a CHORE shifting from sulking to going with the flow really is! Shows where my head is.
    And what I shall work on this week.

  2. Traffic stopped on Grissom Parkway in Myrtle Beach to allow a gaggle of Canada geese to cross from one side to the other–the geese in NO HURRY & we & the other stopped ones not minding, Darryl & I laughing uncontrollably the whole time.

  3. 1. Spending an evening with my daughter’s “Fairy Godmother” and the feeling the joy of being in her “magic” presence once more.
    2. Feeling free and positively spontaneous, making an on-the-spot decision to veer off I95 on the way home, to spend a few wonderful hours at the Botanical Gardens in Fayetteville.
