L + ost = LOST

Today I'm taking a break from my word of the day to highlight a series I just finished watching. My husband and I love taking on long, cumulative series, but we can only handle one at a time it seems. We watched Alias with Jennifer Garner and loved it (though we did take a break in the middle when it got a little weird and slow). Then we watched all 8 seasons of 24 with Keifer Sutherland. We never started with LOST though we had many friends who did. Last fall we started watching it on Netflix streaming after the series ended. Fortunately no one told us how it ended and yesterday we were finally able to finish it. I will not provide any spoilers in case you haven't seen it and are going to. If you haven't, I highly recommend it if you like intricate character development, multiple story lines, and a touch of the supernatural.

Though I do not agree with it theologically, I do love a good story - and this one is indeed a good one. The title stands for many things throughout the storyline and can be interpreted many ways. I love stories like that. J.J. Abrams has a gift, and I appreciate that he shares that gift with us. He inspires me to do the best I can with the gifts I am given. I'm glad that his gift was not lost to us, that was only the title he chose to use.

Don't let your gift (no matter what it may be - we all have one) be lost, share it with the world around you.
