Savour the moment

Rushing out the door yesterday morning, something caught my eye. I glanced back and saw our 10 week old Burmese kitten sitting on top of the grand piano waving his little arm at me as if beckoning me over. I thought to myself, "Wow, what a great portrait - the light in his eyes is just perfect!" and turned back to get out the door. Something made me stop and I dumped everything I was carrying and ran to my office to get my camera. When I got back the kitten was posing patiently, waiting for me to take the portrait. I snapped the shot - only one - and rushed out the door. Later, anxious to see if I managed to capture that moment, I downloaded it onto my computer. Perfect! A real lesson for me to take the time to smell the flowers! I am always so busy rushing around from one thing to another that I never stop to savour the moment. And it is those very fleeting moments of beauty that are impossible to recapture.

  1. So true Renee - there are moments in life we just cannot recapture. They may be to do with our children, our travels, our friends/family - whatever they are we have to learn to enjoy the moment and thus live life to the fullest!
