Often the best things in life happen in the everyday moments. My favorite of yesterday was my daughter, Lindsey, laying at my feet by the kitchen table talking about how nice it is to lay on the floor. About five minutes later I decided to join her and we cuddled underneath our kitchen table for a while. It reminded me of something we would do as children, the simplicity of life in hiding. We tried to recruit my other daughter, who decided this was a little too much.
I find that a lot of the best times in life, are taking the time to capture a moment. Fortunately this is something that can work with whatever challenges we have in life. I find that having fibromyalgia has made me more aware of my surroundings as I am moving at a slower pace. There is more time for the cuddles, the conversations, and to watch for clues that something might be off-balance.
May we take the time to grasp the moments.
