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:
every single bite of the steak Tom grilled;
Bloss’ trepidation, as she enters ‘the spa’;
Bloss’ JOY, after a day at ‘the spa’;
the healing power of honest conversation with a long time friend;
seeing azaleas in bloom and scarlet fall leaves within a mile of each other;
the fun buzz of a book club that actually talks about books (amid much laughter and love);
naming and celebrating the accomplishments of beloveds;
seeing a family of deer, right after wondering why I hadn’t seen any, lately;
how, even though I know everyone grieves differently, it can be real hard for me to let others grieve as they need; and
to my very core, I trust we’re all doing The Best We Can.
What NOWS did you experience or witness this week?
