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.
I drove Tessa and Reed over the Colorado mountains to pick up their Dad after his day of skiing, and for the four of us to continue on to the western part of the state to visit my sister and her family.
We headed into the mountains, leaving the metro area behind us. Twenty-five minutes into the drive, just past this shrine, Reed, wide-eyed with wonder, piped up from the back seat.
“Mom,” he said earnestly, “The world is so beautiful. I am so glad to be alive! Aren’t you?”
(let that sink in. it was glorious, being reminded of all the beauty around me, physically and spiritually.)
Oh, yes, Reed. Moments like these, seeing through your eyes, moving through life with you and your sister and your dad…yes I’m ecstatic to be alive.
(Five miles later I was back to “Quit fighting with each other — don’t make me stop this car!”)
We’ve got to take these moments when we get these moments.
