Things that make me go "wow"!

Hardly a week goes by that something doesn't "knock my socks off". Living my simple life in the middle of the continent doesn't isolate me from all the remarkable things our planet has to offer.

There is so much beauty to be discovered and so much knowledge to be gained. Sometimes I wish I could have been Jane Goodall or Dian Fossey. They accomplished so much that I am in utter awe of them.

I am so grateful for all the explorers, anthropologists, paleontologists, scholars and scientists of every ilk for expanding our knowledge of our fascinating world.

Mom, you have always made me go,WOW !! I've always commented on the accomplishments my mother has made, with pride, to anyone I talk to about you.

Ms. Sparrow, raising kids rarely gets "Wows" from the world, but it ought to!

We have a white peacock in a neighborhood near here. It is amazing to see and just walks its neighborhood with its regular-colored peacock friend!
