We often get caught up in life and forget to truly enjoy the little, priceless moments that weave the fabric of our lives. We just keep going day in and day out, working and keeping busy. Meanwhile there are precious little moments happening all around us.
Recently I was cleaning out old photos and found pictures of my oldest niece when she was just 3 years old. Every moment of those memories is precious as are all the little moments we spend together now that she is grown up and graduating high school. Those moments spent together created a bond between us that is more wonderful than anything money can buy. We continue to create those memories even now and I love that we continue to do that.
This got me thinking of all of the other moments in life that we often rush through without thinking about.
The moments when my grandma and I took day trips around the state come to mind. At that time I did not think about how one day she would be gone, I could not imagine life without her. Now, I am so grateful to have every moment that we did. My life is marked by the amazing woman I was blessed to call grandma. There is no day that passes that I don’t feel her influence.
The hours spent sitting with my closest girlfriends as we discuss life and find so many things to laugh about. The times that we leaned on each other when life was blurry and we just needed someone to sit with us while we cried or talked. The miles of walks that were a way to get fit and spend time together. How precious to have all of these minutes together!
Time spent with my pets just enjoying their pure, sweet personalities. All the silly antics, kisses, and cuddles. Taking Mellie hiking or playing in the hose with her while she gets the happiest face ever!
Hours spent making memories with someone I care about very much. Unique, fun, and laughter filled moments tinged by serious conversation that all flows together.
Times spent speaking in porpoise with my brother…. yep, we do that! The time Beth went to St. Augustine with me for New Year’s Day because I had decided my fear of falling was not keeping me from the top of the lighthouse.
Enjoy every little moment friends, for in those little moments you are making the memories that create your life.
