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.
It’s one thing to see my husband, day-in, day-out, as a spouse and father. I sometimes forget to even notice all he is and does for our family.
But this week, I saw Roger in a new light: as a son. We have been visiting his mom, who calls herself Grandma Marshmallow, but whom we call Grandma Lisa.
Grandma Lisa was diagnosed earlier this summer with Stage 4 lung cancer.
Obvious statement alert…cancer sucks.
Understatement alert…chemo sucks.
Roger has worked tirelessly during his extended stay to cook for his mom, to fix up her bathroom with bars and handles, clean out her attic, groom her yard, shop for groceries, cheer her on, nourish her soul.
She entered the room after a nap yesterday and he greeted her cheerfully with the simple words, “Hi, Mom,” delighted to see her.
And witnessing tenderness in his voice, the latest in a long string of kind words and deeds, I experienced a perfect moment, just by noticing how extra-ordinary my husband is.
I suspect he gets it from his mom.
