"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Perfect Moment Monday: Sometimes he blows me away

Welcome to Perfect Moment Monday sponsored by Lori over at Write Mind Open Heart (formerly Weebles Wobblog). Lori says that "Perfect Moment Monday is more about noticing a perfect moment than about creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between."

It was just a few days ago. Marty had stayed up late with me watching some of the programs he watches with Vic and me. I sat down to shut off the computer and I guess I must have sighed. Marty asked me what was wrong and commented that I sounded tired. I told him I was but I had a few things to do before I went to bed.  I needed to fold laundry and do dishes. Marty said "I can help mom. What do you want me to do?" That's right my 13 (almost 14 yr old was offering to help.  Yeah, he would get to stay up a few minutes later but not doing fun stuff. We both really needed to get to sleep but I couldn't deny his generosity. Marty folded the laundry while I did the dishes and we both were able to go to bed a short time later. Sometimes he really amazes me and makes me stop and realize that we must be doing something right. I love you kiddo and thanks for the Perfect Moment.

Go check out the other perfect moments at this week's Perfect Moment Monday on Write Mind Open Heart.
