Our lives are filled with moments, many of which pass us by without notice. We’re a busy society, afterall. Updating. Downloading. Plugging in. Rushing out. Tweeting. Streaming. Always planning ahead. Constantly feeling behind.
Somewhere in the middle of all that, we lose track of what really defines our lives and who we are — to others as well as ourselves. It’s not the texts or Tweets, posts or pins.
It’s the moments.
Late last night, sitting quietly at the diningroom table together, my wife and I looked at each other, exhausted.
“I missed you today,” I said, snapping a photo as she looked at me, her face resting against her hand. “And not just because you’re beautiful.”
This made her smile.
“Or because you have a great smile and cleavage.”
She began to laugh.
“I guess what I’m saying is that I missed you, your smile and your boobs.”
As she laughed, I was reminded once again that it’s the moments that matter most in life — and how being able to make my wife laugh is my favorite kind.
I hope you’ll remember to make the most of those moments.
(Which, by the way, should not include my wife’s cleavage…)
