Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice"
to the Tuesday Slice of Life sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.
I was inspired by Beth's post today sharing her monthly OLW intentions.
I've been thinking about my OLW and how to keep it a part of my life for the entire year.
I know creating a visual reminder would be a good strategy, but I'm not artistic.
So I created a seasonal check-in time for my OLW.
I consulted the calendar and discovered a
5th Tuesday during April, July, September, and December.
I love that each 5th Tuesday falls during a different season.
Spring, but in April, after our daily SOL challenge in March.
Summer, but during July when most of us have finally calmed down,
and not yet headed back to school (mentally or physically).
Fall, at the end of September after the initial back-to-school rush,
but when we still feel that anything is possible this school year.
Winter, after the holiday rush, but before we march into a new year.
I'm choosing to savor each season of 2014:
Winter finds me savoring comfort foods, sunsets, chocolate,
a book club retreat, and writing for the March SOL challenge.
As spring begins I'll be savoring poetry, blossoms, bunnies, laughter, and birthdays.
My best summer solitary savoring
is lunch on the deck with book in hand, sunshine caressing my back.
When my solitary savoring craves company, I'll join family and friends
to savor fireworks, hiking, Island Celebration, picnics, and Music in the Park.
Fall finds me savoring walks filled with gorgeous colors,
trick or treaters (hopefully I'll have some),
my many blessings, and the celebration of my Savior's birth.
I know that by living with intention I will discover more to savor each season!
