"You have to be really careful when you choose your OLW," I smiled as I placed my gift in the window, "as your word really does have the potential to impact your world." The snowflakes were dancing outside my window; yet, the sun seemed to be trying to breakthrough the clouds. The "To Do" list was long and actually a little scary; yet, somehow, it seemed like the gift of a long weekend would allow me to get some of it done. I thought of my, giftors, whose losses and stressors were many. I pondered the potential of the word...In the hours, after the gift appeared in my window, there were many, many reminders of hope as well as moments filled with laughter, life, love, and hope. It's a potentially life altering word.
