a week of nows #9

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:

celebrating a soul sister’s birth and life;

spotting a cardinal at.the.perfect.moment;

that rainbow over LKW;

fixing Tom a spaghetti dinner;

inappropriate, yet healing, laughter;

saying “YES” to a GodFriend;

saying “NO, thanks for thinking of me for that”;

a stubborn and resilient dandelion;

the healing power of an absolute meltdown;

how humans simply understand another human’s pain;

swapping stories of strength with women;

belly laughter;

admitting /celebrating that cheese is a food group;

Bloss curling-up against my left leg at bedtime;

hearing Bloss snore;

rain on the roof at bedtime;


the power of a great hug;

sharing onion rings with beloveds;

the mental logic and emotional relief of filing tax return extensions for the first time in my life;

that moon over LKW;

a random bite of homemade granola cracking a molar;

deep-down-to-my-toenails friends; and

the painless and healing power of Big W meatballs, collards, cornbread, and red velvet bread pudding.

What NOWS did you experience this week?
