JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 244 :: 4-letter word friday

1 Sep

Love.

I recently created this:  The Love List.

It’s a little notebook where I keep a list of what brings me joy. And every week I plan to pull it out and get an account of what I did on this list.

Did I attempt anything of the List?
Did I make room or space or time for anything on the Love List?
Did I try?

It’s important for many reasons…

  • Why go through life not doing the things we love?
  • If we love something, why not make room for it?
  • Shouldn’t we plan time around what we love?

So far I have noticed this – what we love doesn’t always get attention, or time or space. That’s why this week’s 4-letter word is LOVE.

My Challenge:
I am spending the next 30 days doing one thing on my Love List every single day.
I invite you to join me!
Ready to make a list?

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

Lite.  

What do you need to make a fun summer Friday night even better?
Lights, of course!

And then fireworks. In June.

It’s not quite summer yet. It’s summer lite.
Summer nights.
Lites. Nites. Some of my favorite 4-letter words.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 108 :: 4-letter word friday

21 Apr

Shine.

As in, the sun was OUT today.

As I was driving through town I couldn’t stop hearing a dog bark. No matter where I turned I heard a dog barking. I thought I was hearing things until I looked up at the car in front of me and saw this:


If you look closely you can see the dog’s head poking out of the sunroof.

The pup was excited to be out or a drive, or excited to be on his way to the dog park, or praising the lord that the SUN was finally OUT.  Maybe all of the above.

No matter the reason, it was a glorious sight.
And a good reminder.

We all seem to feel even more alive when the sun is shining. What a kind way of looking at the world. Thanks puppy!

Happy weekend.
Shine on.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 66 :: 4-letter word friday

10 Mar

Hoop.

My first love was a basketball. And tonight, my second love, Justin, and I have been playing the 4-letter word game. We were looking for the perfect 4-letter word to showcase on a Friday. It’s a fun game. We have come up with many options… while watching NCAA basketball on TV.

Play, hard, hoop, ball, lose, lost, wins.

The game we were watching happened to be in the fourth overtime. FOURTH. OVERTIME.

And as the losing team walked off the court with heads hanging low, it had me thinking about wins and losses. The feeling of winning, then losing, then winning again. The back and fourth of the game.

Lose.
Lost.
Lose.
WINS!

And that’s what made me remember — it’s all about hanging in until the end.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 47 :: 4-letter word friday

17 Feb

Wait. 

It’s Friday. And today’s 4-Letter Word Friday is dedicated to this doozie:  WAIT

Because I am waiting.
I am in a hotel room in Washington D.C., waiting for my friends to arrive.

This is my old stomping grounds. I landed today at the beautiful Reagan National Airport and walked right into a wave of nostalgia. Memories of my first job, my first apartment, my first walk into the Real World as I walked down the grand hall.

I am now sitting in a hotel room waiting for my dear friends to arrive. The women who have known me since our college days. It seems like a daze now, the girl in me who was in college then and the young lady who lived in Washington D.C. after.

Today I realized….
I have forgotten how to use the Metro.
I got off at the wrong stop.
My old neighborhood has blossomed into a sea of highrise buildings.
Nothing looks the same so many years and moves later.

And yet…..some things still do.


The historic buildings running by the window of my Metro seat stand tall.
The Irish Pub down the street from my old apartment stands strong.

And so it goes…
As I WAIT for my dear friends to arrive, I realize I spent many of those years that I lived in this Capital City waiting for the ME to appear that sits here.

I so desperately wanted to know who SHE would be, twenty years later. All Grown Up. The joke, of course, is on me. The world keeps changing as I know now, and if we WAIT for something way out in the future to arrive, well, we miss the train…(or get off at the wrong stop).

And yet, I also see the beauty and kindness that blooms within the waiting. Friendships grow stronger. Roots grow deeper. Classics become timeless evermore.

While so much of the world will always change, there’s comfort in knowing some things stand tall and strong. And…of course, if you get off at the wrong stop you can always get back on the train.

Enjoy. The. Wait.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
