Perfect Moment Monday is more about noticing a perfect moment than about creating one. Perfect moments are just waiting to be observed, and can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.
We gather here once a week to engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world, if only for a, well, a moment. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.
Now, here’s mine.
We celebrated my birthday weekend. All weekend. (Because my name is similar to L’Oreal and I’m worth it.)
So I had a gazillion perfect moments. I’ll share three:
1. Roger told me to pack an overnight bag and he drove me to an surprise destination. Want a clue?
Yup. We went to the Stanley Hotel, and survived the night. No, I didn’t see any ghosts or creepy twins or Scatman Crothers or the old lady in the bathtub.
But the hotel DOES have a channel that loops The Shining ’round the clock. Heeeeere’s Johnny!
2. When we returned, my mom and sister held a dinner for me with all my favorite foods. I sat around the table with my parents, Tami and Gino and their son (my other sister and her family had phoned in their love), Roger and Tessa and Reed.
I almost exploded with happiness, and if the Rapture had come at that moment, it would have been anticlimactic.
3. We took the kids sledding today. Just pure fun.
Be sure to follow the other stories/links because as we know, perfect moments can be found in giving and receiving comments. So how about you plant some Perfect Moment seeds and know they’ll grow?
