Moment to be thankful for

Life is made up of moments. Each one means something. Each one is connected to the past and deeply connected to the future. How you handle this moment effects what other moments come your way. There are things that happen in between moment too, breathing, living, thinking. praying, seeking, walking, waiting, waiting, waiting, building...and so much more.

"Oh. if life were made of moments,
Even now and then a bad one-!
But if life were only moments,
Then you'd never know you had one."


Today was filled with moments of love. Yes it made for a pleasant day, but it is an investment into the future of each and every relationship I have.

Tomorrow is a new day. New moments, built upon the ones shared today. Precious memories made.

"Let the moment go...
Don't forget it for a moment, though."

I won't forget Beck asking me for a kiss. or Evie snuggling in for a nap. or my dad crying when he saw me come in the house. or calling my sis and passing the phone to everyone else to say hi. or my moms labor of love. or ira swallowing all his food with out chewing...really. or mike and jess being with us. or miss Eliana's loving on her baby friend. or all the kids screaming through the house. and all the adults stepping over them when they barreled through their paths. or all the kind texts and voicemail's I received.

so many moments to be thankful for today.
