1008 – 1054 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 2012 wOw! moments.   

I hope you’ll have spotted (and maybe even shared) close to that, too.

  1. I love your blog, having just recently stumbled across it. It helps me to remember all the things I am grateful, particularly on those days when I dont really want to… lol.

  2. my wOw this week…… spending an entire week and a half of staycation with my dad at my house!!!!!

  3. I’m so happy to hear about Josh! He was one of Mark’s and my all-time favorite students. With regard to dog bathing, Mark and I have found the best way to bathe Nina is for me to get in the tub with her! It’s actually pretty fun! We love our “shelter dog”! She is the most spoiled child we have! (: My wOw was gratefully reaffirming how therapeutic a day in the garden is for a troubled soul. It leaves me humming an old Laura Nyro favorite, “nothing heals like time and love…”.

  4. momdidit, thanks SO much for joining in this fun adventure!
