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.
This summer Tessa’s participating in an organized sport for the first time — swim team. She’s at the pool every weekday morning of summer break by 8 am, and warming up for meets on Saturday mornings by 7 am. No word (none that I can place on a family blog, anyway) on what child, brother, mother or father think about these early and numerous commitments during vacation.
Tessa had her first competitive meet this weekend at an “away” pool north of us about a 40 minute drive. Which means she was up and out the door around 6 am on a Saturday. She was very nervous and did not really know what to expect. She had a whole flock of butterflies swarming in her tummy.
We told her that just getting to the starting line would make her a winner, and that making it to the finish line would be fabulous, too. She lined up for her heat about 2.5 hours after warm-ups and when the horn sounded she jumped in and swam, freestyle to the other end of the lane — halfway done. She stopped long enough to smile at us and the headed back to the starting/finish line.
Which she crossed. Butterflies were vanquished.
Until next week, anyway.
