Perfect Moment Monday: You got it, Jimmy Cliff

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.

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.

====================================
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you know that I made it to the Xanax on Wednesday and actually got on the table to go under the laser at Denver Eye Surgeons.

Yes — I, Lori, the Biggest Chicken in the World, did LASIK. On one eye. The other will remain uncorrected and will serve as my reading eye.

As you may recall, last Fall over on Mile High Mamas I told about how I came to even consider LASIK. Shortly, I’ll post over there my recollection of the procedure itself (with the help of Tami, my sister/driver/unXanaxed repository of my immediate memory), and my evaluation of its benefits.

But here’s a sneak preview in the music below. I felt elation as I got up off that table. Not just because my eye was fixed, but because I FACED DOWN A LIFELONG FEAR.

Sometimes I rock (with a lot of help from friends and family).

Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.

====================================

After breakfast on Saturday morning, the kids and I headed to the gym. They play in the Kids Club with their cousin, Dominic, while my sister, Tami and I do a cardio class. Works for all of us.

On the way to the gym American Pie came on the radio. Reed especially loves this song because of its association in his mind with Star Wars (remember this post?). He also loves to say, fiercely, “This’ll be the day that I DIE!”

So my perfect moment was the three of us singing at the top of our lungs about the chevy and the levee and the whiskey and rye. As I sing with Tessa and Reed I think of the future. As I listen to the song I think about the past — significant events in the rock & roll genre, 1959-1971 (much of which precedes me).

Swirl together the past and the future into one moment and it was simply perfect.

Sharing it with you. Sing loudly.
