Time flies by pretty fast these days anyway, without missing the 'moments'. What are the 'moments'? They're the special things we encounter along the way that are worth remembering. The moments are special birthdays, anniversaries, accomplishments, and achievements. The moments are the friendships that endure time and challenges and rough patches. The moments are the 'pay it forward' opportunities that present themselves when you least expect them.
The moments are the times and the situations that shape our character and make us who we are.
There are days when life seems to be all about work, finances, responsibilities, and big important decisions. Then you get a Facebook event invitation for your granddaughter's first birthday party that's 4 months away so you can save the date and all you can do is stare at her picture. Suddenly the rest of the world and your day as you knew it no longer exists. You're in complete awe. Her eyes are SO captivating that you'd reach right into the photo if you could and give her a hug and a kiss. It's a MOMENT; the kind of moment that can get you through a long To Do list, a stressful week, or a sad day. It's the kind of moment that can cure whatever ails you. It's the moment that can easily become your screen saver so you can gaze at her any time you miss her and need to renew your inspiration.
Yes, life can get busy and crazy and a little tiring at times, BUT never let it consume you to the point that you miss the 'moments'. These moments will be cherished as memories forever and have the ability to encourage you, inspire you, comfort you, make you laugh, and make you cry.
It's all about the moments. What have been some of your best moments?
