677 – 708 in a year 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.

Here’s what made me say wOw! this week:

677.  my favorite (Sigg) water bottle cracking after it froze;

678.   watching my mom put on make-up on Mother’s Day and feeling seven-years-old again;

679.  how important eating with Mom in the dining room of her Senior Independent Living complex is to her;

680.  the honor of  taking Mom to The Mall (so she can shop for FOUR HOURS!  :));

681.  the 42nd birthday of one of my nephews;

682.  grilled eggplant and onions;

683.  taking care of Mom when she needs me;

691.  remembering that my body has MS in it;

692.  resisting the temptation to try to fix a dear friend’s problems;

693.  that MRIs don’t get any easier;

694.  meeting the seniors at Waccamaw Academy;

695.  Donna Summers;

696.  that Tom and I can work our way all the way through whatever happens;

697.  being present for a young woman who is in the process of changing her life for the better;

698. trampolines;

699.  the compassion and wisdom of friends;

700.  how faith trumps fear;

701.  having a friend who can find the ‘educational component’ of roller coasters;

702.   Grey’s Anatomy;

703. the comfort of homemade turkey pot pie;

704.  laughter and tears with longtime friends;
