Lately, I've been acked (Simone's definition - filled with mixed emotions from surprised wordlessness to a sudden urge to go for a drive or eat a slice of cheesecake.) I'm glad that my Boos guest posted for me because, 1) They did great and 2) I needed to step back for a moment. Thanks to all of you for your sweet words to the both of them.
The endless job search often brings me to being acked. I never expected the helplessness to hit me so hard. I refuse to give in to the fear that has woken me up the last three nights out of a dead sleep. I know that God has a plan for me and I'm trying so hard to be patient and wait.
But the greatest feeling is being phoosed. (Simone's definition - surprised when you least expect it...similar to walking and finding a dollar on the ground.) I was phoosed this morning when I got a call from a jazz radio station telling me that I was the grand prize winner of a 15 week Jazz Concert Summer Series in Newport Beach. That's two free tickets for some great jazz artists and all for free! I thanked God right then for phoosing me. I also had another phoos when my dog brought in his gift of a dead bird and laid it on the kitchen floor. Now THAT'S one phoos that I'd rather not receive.
Have you been acked and phoosed? If so, please share!
