One Moment In Time
What are the moments we remember?
All the firsts can set the benchmarks for all those meaningful moments that follow. I wonder how many first moments were so perfect that nothing else could compare.
Or is it the last moment that gives us that lingering memory.
All of the lasts also give us a benchmark for meaningful moments. I wonder how many last moments give us bittersweet lingering memories.
What is your celebration of joy?
I’ve found the answer in the lyrics of a favorite song. But, it’s not just one moment but many that as the song puts it have me racing with destiny. I have very little musical talent and am tone deaf. With that said, my use of the song is not for the texture of the song (which is great), but the lyrically of the song that not only makes it suitable for singing but also for living. Let’s take the musicality from the song and add life. The lyrics I wish I had written, but they’re not mine and I have taken liberties in presenting them. They offer answers to my question.
A day to give
The best of me
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
There has been more than “a” day to give the best of me. The best of me was all the firsts. It, however, wasn’t a first kiss, dance or even a love. It was a heartbeat! The best of me was the first day of my marriage listening to my husband's heartbeat as I lay in his arms. This was only surpassed by hearing the heartbeat of each of my children for the first time. These were the days that I gave the “best of me”, even the best of us. These moments in time were my wishes and dreams that made my heart race. Moments that will never happen again but moments I will always have to remember again and again.
And the answers are all up to me
Lay the chance right here in my hands
When I'm racing with destiny
My finest day is yet unknown
Moments in our marriage and the raising of our children were the precious moments when we did hold destiny in our hands. It’s hard to see from moment to moment. Our finest were always a moment away. And, I realize now that is the way it should be. A moment of regret belongs in the past for the future should not be less.
You're a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine
My regret is that it took a lifetime to realize that I let precious moments pass me by. Carpe Deim, truly the way to live to feel like a winner for a lifetime. For in one moment of time, a heartbeat away, we can feel eternity. Losing a love in a moment can feel like eternity from that moment on. Moments never happen again.
My celebration of joy – the heartbeat of a marriage and a family. It was A Moment In Time that will never happen again but made me more than I thought I could be. Not a simple answer, but the first moments that were more than I dreamt possible.
My Moments of Time
- Love's Everyday
Love can be a powerful thing, proven in the twinkles that remain. In my 65th year of life, my granddaughter reminded me of loves perfect examples. We are often told what love is not by our ministers during marriage ceremonies. Love is not envious,...
- Whispers of Wishes and Dreams
I had given up on wishes. Given up so many times, I had forgotten that I had wishes. But, I did have wishes. Wishes to be rich. Wishes to be beautiful. Wishes to be loved. Wishes to be happy. Wishes, Wishes and more Wishes. I...
- As I Live And Breathe
Reflections of the moments in my life that affected my breathing pattern.
What Has Changed?
Five years later, I find myself searching for memories of my finest moments. It is remembering some of my finest moments that I know they will never happen again and that makes them so very precious. I realize the moments that bring me regret are also important. All memories are important for they show us our strengths and weaknesses. I am strong. I am weak. I have room to improve. I love the all the moments that were my firsts but, my finest is yet to come because that's not all there is. A moment will someday be a memory that brings us pleasure or causes us regret. Live each moment so that it is our gift in the future. Carpe Diem!
