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.
First of all, thanks to everyone who left a comment or sent warm thoughts to me two weeks ago, and to those who left a blogoversary gift last week. The unstated situations have improved, and I enjoyed savoring your presents. I so love and appreciate you all.
Now, this week’s perfect moment.
Tessa has been going through a rough spell. Three days in a row she called from school in tears. The problem? “I just miss you, Mommy!” said amid chokes and fits.
At bedtime one night, I tried to get to the root of the issue. Was someone at school teasing her? Did she not feel well physically? Is she jittery about the end of the school year? Did Mother’s Day trigger something? Nothing has changed in our routine, so why was she suddenly feeling lonely for me?
I did not get an answer.
What she DID say, though, was this: “Mommy, I go into my classroom and it just doesn’t smell like you.”
Tessa has always been very attuned to scent.
I naturally asked, “What do I smell like, Sweetheart?”
And then I feared for the answer. Garlic? Coffee? Stale cheese? Wine? The gym? Methane?
Yikes. Did I really want to know?
Her sleepy voice replied, “Mama, you smell like purple chocolate.”
Which is utterly, thoroughly perfect.
