Moment to Remember: Help Thanks Wow by Anne Lamott

(This is the first of what will become regular posts where I just share a quote that resonates with me or is particularly thought-provoking to give you a taste of the book.  I hope that you enjoy me selections and go on to read the book for yourself!)

 

Wows come in all shapes and sizes, like people.  There are the lowercase wows.  These are the times when we sink into something modest that delivers above and beyond.  When you crawl between clean sheets after a hard day, you are saved.  You feel like you are the best sandwich ever. You’re being taken care of from the top and the bottom, with not a crumb or a lump or a wrinkle.  Wow: you can’t believe you felt so low and lonely till you thought to change the sheets.
