1177 – 1209 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.

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

  1. Lisa, I graduated from ECU many “moons” ago but your beautiful butterfly made me think of the tiny caterpillars that are forming on my parsley plants. I love to start parsley from seed and watch all of the different stages of the caterpillar and then have so many butterflies; parsley makes a beautiful border in your yard. This is my wOw and you are my wOw for being so strong!!! ccrider

  2. hortonhealsherself, sooooooooooooo glad others see and remember ECUs magic!

    Corrine, go Pirates! and THANKS for giving me a more loving way to consider my caterpillar-gobbled parsley ~ who knew?
