susan dresses for dinner
If you didn’t choose a guiding word, what word sums up your year so far?
I didn’t choose a word this year. I waited, instead, to see if a word would choose me.
There have been a few that walked right up to me, looked me up and down, asked if I wanted to try them on for size.
“Magic.” “Small things.” “Permission.”
I liked them all, and the fit was pretty good, but then this month, acceptance walked up, gave me a big hug, and wrapped herself around my shoulders.
Settled in for a nice long chat.
And just like that, I had my word.
She and Susan and I have been spending lots of time together, out in the garden beneath a perfect gypsy sky. And don’t tell her I said this, but Susan is such a show off this year.
