Holy Smokes! February WOW From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Welcome to Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and welcome to this fun series that we do the 1st of every month called WOW, which is an acronym for two phrases: Words of Wisdom and/or Weapons of Warfare! Grab your coffee and come on in.

I cannot believe 2011’s gone and now the first month of 2012 is gone, too! Holy smokes! Oh, that reminds me, the WOW! 🙂 🙂 🙂

For those of you who may remember, I started a word fast on the 1st of January. What’s a word fast? I’m so glad you asked! The Hebrew word “fast” means to cover the mouth, and let me tell you, I had no idea how hard it was going to be to fast – cover my mouth — from negative, critical, judgmental and complaining words! The truth is, it has proven to be impossible for me so far! 🙂

By the 7th of the month, I had already failed two times and by the middle of the month, I gave up, although just temporarily. I’ll explain what I mean later on. For now, let me share a little something that totally tickled my heart and I hope it tickles yours, too. 🙂

I love it when it’s time to go get my hair done because I get to visit with two very special people in my life: a very close girlfriend and her daughter, who is now my hair stylist, aka, hair doctor! She’s amazing, by the way! 🙂 Anyway, we were sitting there chatting about the various things going on in our lives and I was sharing with her about the newest addition to our household, little Bryden, who is about to turn two this month, and all the changes that this one little person has brought with him into my life.

“Holy smokes!” she says. And I said: “’Holy smokes!’ is right, but the smoke I’ve been blowing hasn’t been holy”! Our laughter collided with a spark of light in my heart that didn’t completely cast its understanding until a couple of days later; however, I knew that I would be blogging about this phrase. What I didn’t know is what it had to do with my word fast.

Join me tomorrow for that!

Have a happy day!
