seize the moment

Life has a way of handing us exquisitely wonderful moments sometimes, even in the midst of crises, bedlam, or the chaos of an ordinary day. For example, recently, when three of my little great-nephews were visiting, I asked for a photo of them taken with me. [It's EXTREMELY rare that I ask for a photo of myself, but for some reason, it seemed important that afternoon.] They immediately swarmed over to me, surrounding me with their youthful exuberance. I SEIZED THE MOMENT and held it close to me when the youngest (3 years old) just came to me and laid his head next to my heart to face the camera, without any prompting. This morning I came across the photo when I was sorting through my digital pics and grasped that moment all over again. One day, when he's older, I'll tell him how much that moment meant to me.

Exquisite joy.


Hope your day is truly blessed,
Melanie
