"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: the little things

Welcome to Perfect Moment Monday sponsored by Lori over at Write Mind Open Heart. 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." For those of you who have never stumbled across Perfect Moment Monday or who know of it but don't participate, I really, really beg of you to join in. I have been so much more aware of the special little moments in life since I started participating.

1) Watching Nemo with Gabe and having him come up and wrap his arms around me and say I love you just as Nemo and Marlin are reunited.

2) On Friday night, Joey and Marty were going to spend the night at their friends' house (another set of brothers)  but Joey had Tae Kwon Do sparring and they went hard enough that he was tired and sore afterward. All he wanted was some motrin and bed, no sleepover. When I picked Marty up the next day, the first words out of his mouth were "Is JoJo okay? Does he feel better?"

3) Got my plane tickets for BlogHer and the flight times are good and the round trip from North Carolina to San Diego is only $400 including taxes and fees.

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

I echo your sentiments about what participating in PMM regularly has brought to my life and they way I see things.

Thank you for sharing yours this week. I love the Nemo one, as well as your son being concerned about his brother. Also that is awesome that you are going to BlogHer! That's is very exciting! :)
