a week of NOWS ~ #20

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:

joyFULL memories of Mom, nourished with gentle tears;

swapping sibling stories with a dear soul sister;

the honor of a friend’s trust;

the first hummingbird’s visit;

being heard;

heart-rattling terror and overwhelming hope for a beloved and his family;

finding a penny in downtown Charlotte;

the enduring magic of James Taylor’s music;

the excitement and pride of a beloved high school graduate (and his parents);

how sharing a stromboli & salas with Tom is better than the grandest meal at any fine restaurant;

being nourished by two magnificent sermons in one day;

witnessing people saying “I Will”, to God’s call;

hugging newly ordained friends;

enjoying every.single.bite of a Ceasar salad w/bacon wrapped scallops; and


What NOWS did you experience this week?
