I’m reading the Anne Lamott’s latest book. It’s a book on prayer that is inspirational without leaving me feeling guilty. Anyway, Anne says “Wow” means we are not dulled to wonder. The word “Wow” is thought to have been used first by Thomas Burns in a poem 1871 “Tam o’ Shanter” “An’, wow! Tam saw an unco sight!” “Unco” means strange and unfamiliar.
I find myself praying “wow” quite a lot!
