This month my good friend Lori from LavenderLuz is retiring her truly awesome blog hop/writing exercise called Perfect Moment Monday, after years of hosting it weekly and eventually monthly.

I checked my archives and discovered that I have written and shared 35 posts over the years about Perfect Moments in my life.

I know so many who have been touched by participating and, like me, have met and gotten to know many other wonderful bloggers through writing about, sharing and commenting on perfect moments.

I appreciate how bittersweet it is to retire from a writing project that is so near and dear to ours hearts. I also respect those who know when it’s time to move on, at least for now.

My perfect moment this month is recognizing the gratitude I feel to Lori and all those who I have connected with one or more times via noticing and sharing perfect moments. Thank you, for the happiness and validation. This exercise has been therapeutic for me and I am sure for many others.

I leave you with a limerick in honor of Lori and Perfect Moment Mondays:

I tip my hat to you, Lori. 
For Perfect Moments, I will never be sorry. 
On Mondays we shared,
And showed others we cared,
We will miss PPM, our dear Lori. 

I wrote this limerick before I realized that another blog will be hosting Perfect Moments going forward, so if you are interested in participating in the future, you can do so here.

Lori from Lavender Luz 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. Over the years 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 wonderful opportunity to focus on what is right in our life, instead of what is wrong.

I hope that you have a wonderful week and that you are aware of, as well as able to notice, many perfect moments in your own lives.

Well, you just gave me one of the most perfect of perfect moments, Kathy. Especially since I associate you so closely also with the Limerick Chick Contest!

I am feeling quite loved, thanks to you! xoxoxoxo
