Cherishing the Little Moments
How often do you cherish the little moments?
This past week was bitterly cold and all I wanted to do was bundle up and stay inside, but my husband and I had planned a Valentine's date for after work.
Our daughter giggled with excitement and challenged us to be fancy.
"How often do you get a chance to dress up?" she gushed.
Several excuses ran through my mind: it is -30 degrees, the dress is sleeveless, people may stare at the crazy couple...
With a little coaxing, we dressed up and had a ball.
Why hadn't we done this sooner? How many opportunities are we missing because we make excuses?
"Sometime you may never the true value of the moment until it becomes a memory."
Playing board games; using crystal and china for dinner; dressing up for an evening out;
sending a thoughtful card; watching the sunrise; listening to a friend; baking a cake; chatting by the fire...
Cherishing the little moments may take a few extra minutes to plan, but the end result is worth it.
