Moments are the Molecules that Make Up Eternity 8


 

Moments

 

I love this quote by Neal A. Maxwell.  He had a way of turning mere words into poetry.  This is something I need to work on: moments.  If I am not careful they pass me by.  I know I have been focusing on this in a couple of my posts, but it seems so important.

But, I have found it isn’t just the little good things that make up eternity, it is also how we respond to those negative things that happen in our lives.  How did I respond when the car cut me off? When my friend forgot to return my call?  How did I respond when they didn’t care about the party they were invited to that I spent hours and hours preparing for? 

How did I respond to the little fingers that reach out for me when I am angry?  How do I respond to the messes that seem to appear several times a day?

These are the moments.  As I think about what I remember from my childhood, I remember dinner every night together.  Family prayers whether we had friends there or not.  I remember toys on the floor and bikes in the yard.  I remember my mom singing.  I remember my brothers wrestling.  Laughter.

I hope I can leave good memories.  I hope I can enjoy the moments, good and bad, that make up my every day.
