I am sitting here listening to M. Russell Ballard as he talks about motherhood, and living in the moment, and focusing more on the “doing” than on the “getting it done”. So, let’s share some shining moments.
Recently, my son hugged me and said “You’re the best, mom.” That was a Shining Moment. He also refused to carry in his plate after dinner, and my daughter said she’d do it for him. Shining Moment, combined with Annoying Disobedience Moment. They are all playing well together right this minute. Shining Moment. The boy on the bus continues to give my oldest love notes daily. She continues to tell me about them. Shining Moment (the talking about it) combined with HOLY CRAP MY KID IS GROWING UP AND I AM SO SCREWED Moment.
Let’s hear some Shining Moments. Then when the dark days come, we can take these Moments out and remember why we agreed to this gig in the first place.
