Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.
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.
We make it a point to have family dinners whenever possible. It’s a time to check in with each other, compare our days, work out schedules and issues.
One dinner this week ended in a challenge. “Make me laugh,” said Reed to his Daddy.
Now, this is funny to us because Reed cannot NOT laugh. This is the equivalent of a high school boy saying, “Make me horny” or Michelle Duggar saying, “Make me pregnant,” or me saying “Make me a drink.”
The gauntlet thrown, that game lasted .000003 seconds.
Then we switched it up. Reed was to make each of us laugh, and we were to hold out as long as possible.
That kid got super goofy, with his voice, his body, his face. He was completely unselfconscious, a master of improv, playing and being in the moment in a way that only kids and Gilda Radner can.
All four of us were doubled-over with giggles from these laugh-wars. My cheeks and abs hurt. Tears were rolling down our faces.
It was a beyond-happy moment of bliss and mirth that I will remember the rest of my life.
