On Friday, my beautician (poor girl, and she has to work with me! But that's what they like to be called professionally) Anyway she had this Christmas ornament on the shelf in front of the mirror:
Maybe you have seen it before, but I haven't and it certainly made an impact.
Now I'm very conflicted about Christmas. Truthfully, I wish everyone would leave it alone so I could celebrate it the Way I Would like to. (Please don't respond to this part of the blog because I don't mean to get into this issue. It's just background information.) Just suffice it to say that the ornament touched a chord in me that reconciled my two elements of conflict: commercial and religious .
This is where the W0W comes in. I am also very conflicted about my relationship with computers. I think most of us have experienced this. It's a love/hate relationship. So much potential for good, so much that is frustrating and aggravating.
Here's the good news....
I saw this ornament for the first time in my life on Friday afternoon. I immediately decided I wanted to buy one each for some friends, but WHERE am I going to find them???? After my appointment, I tried a few Christmas stores in the mall and soon realized I wasn't going to get anywhere with that.
So the WEB was the next obvious step. That night (WHEN...only a few hours later) I found it on the Web...I ordered three of them.....they were delivered to my door Monday evening !!!
When could that have ever happened before computers? I am very impressed.
This is my entry for ABC Wednesday letter W. Many, many thanks To Mrs. Nesbitt and Roger Owen Green ( I have to put his full name because my son's name is Owen !) for their wonderful willingness to continue this meme week after week. Please visit HERE to see other entries to our project. They maybe whacky even, but I guarantee you will find something of interest.
