Did you watch the Oscars? I watched the “prelims” to see all the beautiful dresses! Yes, I know that’s kinda shallow, but it’s the truth and I love fashion design!
Was it just me or was there a shortage this year of beautiful, absolutely stunning dresses? Who was your favorite? Mine was Lupita Nyong’o in her 6,000-pearl (yes, count them!!) Calvin Klein dress … amazing!
We just finished watching a Super Bowl with an unforgettable ending, regardless who you were cheering for!
With approximately a minute remaining in the game, Seattle’s quarterback, Russell Wilson, was intercepted. And the NBC announcer exclaimed, “That was the worst call in Super Bowl history!” and he said it more than once! Yes, with two downs to go and possibly the best running back in football in a Seattle uniform, why would Coach Pete Carroll choose a pass play instead of running it with Marshawn Lynch in the end zone … to win the big game?
Coach Carroll has been second-guessed, blamed and in the week following the game, has even taken responsibility for “making the wrong decision.” The “Monday morning quarterbacks” were loud and vocal. Hindsight is 20/20, isn’t it?!
I keep wondering if Carroll made the choice to pass the ball (instead of running Lynch) because Lynch would have been “keyed upon” especially with only a minute remaining. Was it such a bad call, after all?! Only two weeks earlier in the NFC Championship game, it was Wilson’s passes that beat the Green Bay Packers to get Seattle to the big game. As they say, there’s always next year!!
In 2014, I spent a lot of time in Lexington, KY where my parents live in an assisted living facility. And it’s been a fun, fulfilling experience getting to know several of the residents in their building. Many of them have severe health complications, yet those who thrive focus on the glass being “half full” (not empty). In other words, they live in gratitude, with thankfulness.
It has been a gentle reminder to live in gratitude and New Years is a perfect time to re-commit to this practice. What are you grateful for?
What is your healing role in the New Year? That is the question that keeps roaming around in my brain since January 1st! Is it to help starving children or teach or doctor or play with grandchildren or bring smiles or cook or be present in the moment? All are important … all are vital to help the world heal. May you be blessed in your endeavors this special year of 2015!
With Christmas fast approaching, we are winding down with preparations and moving into being present for the actual day/event. It is a lovely time of year and from “Women as Healers,” we wish you joy, peace, love and many blessings.
Sometimes we need just a “little something” extra to finish up our holiday shopping. May we suggest the “Women as Healers” book! Be sure to order by December 20th to ensure delivery by Christmas; click here for easy ordering.
I find it absolutely lovely to set aside one day each year to be in gratitude … all day long! I wonder what would happen in the world if every country had a day of focusing on being thankful? I believe it would change the world … what do you think? Enjoy this special holiday … Happy Thanksgiving!
