A Day

For the A to Z Challenge I am offering words of encouragement. My theme is “Have Yourself an Alphabet Soup Month.”

The idea stems from a tradition I have with my youngest offspring.  We tell each other such things as “Have a…. Magnificent Monday, Terrific Tuesday, Wonderful Wednesday, Thoughtful Thursday, and Fantastic Friday. I will be using the alphabet to encourage you to have positive days.

I decided to add another element to this when I reflected on my last moments with my father before he passed away. Though he was not able to communicate with me, I knew he could hear me speak. I was at a loss for words, so I read psalms from his Bible. In each psalm there was a statement about God defeating our enemies. I was struck by the thought that my father didn’t have any enemies, as far as I knew.

Now, many years later, I have come to understand our enemy is anything we let hold us back from where we wish to be. Our enemy is fear among other things. With that in mind, I am going to add a word, or two, to help us shut down our enemies.

Letter A a

May you have an Absolutely Amazing, Abundant, Awe-inspiring, Adventurous, Acutely Aware, Accomplished day.

May your enemies be Abolished.


I am a dreamer who loves to explore the world through words. I hope to inspire others to live in peace and be their best selves. I also have an affinity for flamingos, gnomes, and all things magical. They live happily in my gardens.

  4. There is a synergy in our posts. I like the idea of the word game: let’s feel the fear and do it anyway.
