There have been so many perfect moments that I experienced this month celebrating the holiday season with our family and friends. However, I will just highlight one simple moment here that melted my heart on Christmas day. Yesterday morning Abby opened her present from Santa, it was a Disney Princess themed “play hut.” Her daddy quickly assembled it and she was very excited to explore it from the inside out. After looking at the hut, running around it and climbing in and out many times, Abby exclaimed:
“Cinderella and me have a castle!”
It was a truly perfect moment for me to see how much our daughter appreciates her gift and to witness the connection she made between our recent trip to Disney World, where we saw Cinderella’s Castle in the Magic Kingdom, and her new toy. Abby feels like a princess playing in her very own “castle” and it gives me so much joy watching her relish in it!
Lori from Write Mind Open Heart says that “Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.” I love the idea of being mindful of and blogging about perfect moments. In the past I have often used my blog more to write about things I am struggling with and though I know that is valid and important for me at times, I appreciate the idea of being intentional about also sharing the simple and very special moments in our lives. Many thanks to Lori for this idea, a wonderful opportunity to focus on what is right in our life, instead of what is wrong.
