Yesterday, after a nice Sunday meal, as I relaxed on the couch, I saw a beatific smile on my husband’s face. Turned out he was having a ‘Moment of tenderness’ looking at an old image of our kids.
This got me thinking. Our lives are made up of many such moments – some funny, some poignant, some embarrassing and some painful.

‘Passage of time moment’ – when you look at an old photo and realize how time has flown.
‘Moment of realization’ – when your children say the same things to you that you said to your mother, and you catch yourself dispensing the same advice as your mother.
‘Moment of horror’ – the day after your visit to a hair stylist – when you are not able to set your hair the same way, and each peek into the mirror makes you feel terrible.
‘Moment of tenderness’ – when you look at your children while they are asleep, and all your love bursts forth.
‘Moment of irritation’ – when you know that you are coming down with a bad cold, and your head and nose announce it.
‘Moment of stupidity’ – when you come back home from the supermarket without the two main items you had gone to buy.
‘Moment of aggravation’ – when you are typing a message, and your cell phone battery drains.
‘Moment of nostalgia’ – when you see an old dress that fit you at one point in time.
‘Moment of joy’ – when you receive a card from your kids or a gift from your husband.
‘Moment of giggling’ – when a dear friend calls and you let off steam.
‘Moment of solitude’ – when you read a good book on a rainy day
‘Moment of contemplation’ – thinking about the deeper meaning of life, while sipping delicious coffee.
And many, many more such. What other moments do you have? Would love to know.
