This past week, my husband and I went wandering about town.
We saw what we wanted, and so decided to go window shop on other blocks. Soon we stopped in front of this intriguing place.
"Have you been here before?" asked the jovial, lean man with the navy blue bow tie.
"No we haven't" I replied with glee.
My husband's eyes said it all. This is going to cost me!
We stepped inside to a time long ago. Smells of vintage antiques wafted in the air. Christmas carols tickled our ears. In the middle of the room stood a tall tree filled with wonder. There we stood, staring at the dancing lights, entranced by the joy of it all.
I dare say I was hypnotized!
My eyes scanned the room. Treasures were everywhere. I looked and looked and then....there...on the old desk....
When the word is on your radar, you find it everywhere. In line at the grocery store, on the radio, on the bank marquee, EVERYWHERE!!! The word just jumps in front of you, screaming for your attention. As I look through this journal, there are countless ways that I have learned on a deeper level what this word means...
One quote I wrote:
"eat the mystery of the moment with TRUST. it terrifies, true. But it exhilarates." --Ann Voskamp
I'm on the hunt for a new word for 2015. I am excited about which one it will be.
