Today’s moment for me was this morning with my 4-year-old granddaughter. Rowan spent last night with us and before she when to bed last night, she got up in my lap, let me hug her and kiss her, and tell her that I loved her. Before she went to sleep last night, she asked me if I would make her pancakes tomorrow morning. My answer was, of course, “I sure will, sweetie.”
This morning, I got up and made pancakes for her. When she woke up, she came and got back in my lap and let me love on her for a good 2 minutes. That was my moment today.
Why am I telling you this? When I was holding her this morning, I realized that I would never have that moment again. Once it was over, it was over. I hope to have many similar moments, but I can never have that exact moment again.
Be careful to savor the moments in your life because they are the memories you will carry with you for the rest of your life. You won’t remember the report you did at work or the sale you made or the x, y, z, but you will remember your moments just like I will remember today. KT
