105- 161 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 2012wOw! moments.    I hope you’ll have spotted (and maybe even shared) close to that, too.

  1. How about, how BAD our dog, Nina, smelled after apparently rolling in the remains of some decomposing animal she found in the swamp? (She was so pleased to bring it to us and lay it at our feet!) Luckily, this “grossed-out” wOw was soon followed by the wOw of how soft and silky and good smelling she was after her bath with lavender scented baby shampoo!

  2. * Finding out Virginia Beach’s Ambulance is the nation’s largest FREE service.
    * My BFF making me laugh uncontrollably when I needed it most.
    * Making hats on a circular loop.
    * Possibility of a REAL job.

  3. So many of those WOW! moments I got to see, too….especially the breakfast! 🙂

    Life’s meant to be shared. And sharing it with you is always a joy.
