Perfect Moment Monday: My Special Power

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

We gather once a week to engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.

Please visit the links of the participants at the bottom.

Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.

====================================
My 6 year-old son Reed got to talking about the Special Powers of some of the people in his life.

  • Uncle Gino has the powers of Wii.
  • Aunt Tami’s is to serve yummy food and drinks like root beer.
  • Tessa’s is to be the “annoyingest sister but the best sister.”
  • Daddy’s is to heal from being a half-dead big boy.

Mine?

“Mama, your Special Power is to always make kids feel happier when they are sad.”

Why did this bring me a perfect moment? Because I see myself as the opposite, more of a “buck up — you really don’t have anything to complain about” kind of mom. Good to know it’s somehow working for me, for him.

Reed thinks his own Special Power involves his skills as a swordsman (swordsboy?) and a warrior. As honed as those skills are, I think his true Special Power is the kindness swirling in his lion heart.

I love that he see’s those special powers in everyone – I think that is HIS special power – the ability to see what is special about others. Obviously you’re doing a GREAT job with him. :)

I really need to start doing this.

And what a wonderful special super power you have. Mine is simply being schnarky.

But I was wondering how your hubby was doing. I know you’ve mentioned him a bit, but how is he really doing? Still pain?

This made me cry just a little. My mommy has that super-power too.

She’d tickle me and quote some kind of movie and suddenly, I’d be laughing despite myself.
