Enough #29

My word for 2020 is ENOUGH.

It’s such a great word and realization. And it’s so versatile!

  • I can use it while standing tall, with clenched fists and lots of exclamation points. “Enough of THAT!!!”
  • I can use it when I remember to put Fear in the back seat. So I can get on with Life. “Enough, already.”
  • I can use it when no matter how I try, things just don’t turn out as I planned or wanted. So I can allow a glimmer of grace to creep-in and flip my compassion switch ON. “:: deep sigh:: Enough.”
  • I can also use it when God/The Universe/and Everything Good presents one of those gobsmacking moments of awe and love. “THIS is enough.”

For a bunch of years, I had the joy of gathering my great nephew, nieces, and pals for Camp Waccamaw. I hope it was fun for them. It sure was, for me. I treasure those memories almost as much as I treasure those humans (and the humans, Amanda and Julia, who helped!)

The other day I came across a YouTube video I put together of one of those gatherings. It filled my heart to.the.rim.

In these days of missing the presence of people I love, this video was enough – almost. The people in this video are 11 years older now. I’m not brilliant, but I’m smart enough to not ‘tag’ these kids on this video. I may tag their parents, though. 😜

Sometimes, when memories are all we have, they are enough. Even in the midst of These Crazy Times, I hope memories aren’t all I have left with these rascally, wise, sassy, brilliant, gifted, and beloved humans.

How have you witnessed or experienced enough lately?
