Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.
Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.
After MUCH more prep time and hassle than anyone expected, my family headed out for a downtown bike ride. Getting everybody fed, hydrated and sunscreened, repairing/tuning up 4 bicycles and 8 tires, as well as loading said bikes into/onto the car turned out to be quite an ordeal. NOT THAT ANYONE LOST HER TEMPER OR ANYTHING. What was supposed to take place in the relative cool of the morning turned out to be a 2 pm launch. On a day in which temps hit the 90s and the sun was blazing.
Those were not the perfect parts.
Once we hit the bike path, however, the perfect moments began flowing. This was my view of the urban trail and my family on it.
We rode along a creek to where its joins a river. Tessa and Reed could not resist doing what everyone else was doing in the shallows of the confluence — just playing around.
Tessa and Reed had their own perfect moments. A week before we had attended a fabulous sangria party at Greeblemonkey‘s house. Tessa and Reed had befriended Dominic and Francesca, roughly my kids’ ages and the children of another guest . Tessa confessed on the way home that she had a little crush on Dominic (and he on her?).
So guess who we ran into while river-dipping at the confluence? Yup, Dominic and Francesca. Tessa and Reed were thrilled.
After a bit we stopped for a snack and headed home. Much happier than when we’d left it.
