1541 – 1581 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. Want to know about the coconut oil! What WOWed me…..it’s been 32 years since we graduated from ECU and I still great very excited on game days & Homecoming! BUT this year I was so WOWed by the number of ECTC grads at the Homecoming events. While I am excited by our future Pirates, I am in awe with our past!

  2. Reconnecting with my college roommate, an interior designer from NJ, who “employed” me for one day to visit the High Point Furniture Mart with her (she even made up business cards for me!), seeing the AMAZingly inspirational things there (including that one of the exhibiting designers is one of my former students) AND seeing my Big City Designer friend so impressed with the decor of the home of my son & his Beloved in Greensboro! So many wOws, I’m positively exhausted… (:

  3. seeing a dear friend find love and get married, spending the afternoon with my favorite cheap therapist-grateful she let me hang out as long as i did, getting back home and having my childhood best friend arrive with love in her heart and a smile on her face

  4. Going to Atlanta with “my someone special” for his youngest granddaughter’s baptism and actually talking to the six month old baby about how much God loves her…..And seeing understanding in her eyes!!!!

  5. Linda, gotta love our Pirates ~ past, present and future. re: coconut oil 😉 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_oil
