Precious Moments: That is the challenge for this week!
Each of us is rewarded at some point in time with moments we deem simply precious. These moments stay with us stored away in our mental scrapbooks to be revisited as necessary through smiles, giggles, and sometimes even tears. Sweet memories!
Like the times the kids fought over whose cookie had the most chocolate chips. What a sight as they picked out the chips one by one just to prove a point! The next batch of cookies I dared anyone to start picking it apart threatening to bake non-chocolate, chocolate chip cookies. [ha-ha] I did decorate each one with a smiley face from then on, which brought on even more smiles and giggles, each delicate cookie equally branded!
What warm, fuzzy stories do you have stored in your mental diary? Think about it: Recollections of such precious moments might just trigger a poem, a story, a personal reflection. After all, it is such accounts of life that keep us going, always on the alert for that next precious moment.
“Cherish those precious moments because they did not happen by plan or design
but by feelings, hunch, chance, fate, destiny or just the need to say hello
to a particular person at that point in time.”
Seconds in time
Stored in the mind
Frets & falls
Tears have their place
Remnants of grace
Stories amid laughter
Echo & resound
Playfulness of heart
The true common ground
