A Fleeting Moment

I'm having one of those moments...the kind where I sit on my couch, quietly working on my laptop while my son reads a stack of picture books and my daughter snoozes in her crib. It's a moment of peace in a normally hectic atmosphere - my home. Try as I may, keeping a peaceful and pleasing home is fairly beyond my realm of reality with two preschoolers. But I don't stress about it.

I just appreciate it all the more when I do find a moment of peace and tranquility in my day. My day, which started at 5:15 AM with both kids bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, Mommy and Daddy suffering major msg-headaches, and progressed to scrubbing the kitchen and mopping the floors.

So I'm sitting in a clean house (okay, somewhat clean house) at 9:00 in the morning and just enjoying this moment of peace.

God bless those fleeting moments! We need them to catch our breath sometimes :) How long did it last?

I had about 45 minutes of bliss...we learn to take our moments where we can get them and appreciate them! Sometimes it's 5 minutes with a glass of lemonade in hand and feet propped up on the coffee table while the kids play. Sometimes it's a magazine and an adirondack chair sidled up to the sandbox...whatever it takes to capture a "Mommy Moment!"

I agree completely! Having a few quiet minutes intemingled in my hectic day makes me apreciate them completely!

Catching those fleeting moments is one of the best parts of the day sometimes, isn't it? I've found that if I don't pay attention and watch out for them, they actually me by.
