"Wow," was all I could say each time I looked at it, radiating behind slivers of clouds. I drove around the block to get one more clear view. Asking, maybe pleading, to my girls, "Do you see it?! Isn't it amazing?! Wow!" And I realized, I had been talking about this response, this one word, this prayer with a friend just moments before. I couldn't quite remember how Anne Lamott described it. How is "Wow" a prayer. So I looked it up...
“When we are stunned to the place beyond words, we’re finally starting to get somewhere… when an aspect of life takes us away from being able to chip away at something until it’s down to a manageable size and then to file it nicely away, when all we can say in response is ‘Wow,’ that’s a prayer.” — Help, Thanks, Wow The Three Essential Prayers by Anne Lamott#suckerfortheskyline
