Just a few "miscellaneous moments" on this Monday morning.
My husband and I were driving from a friend's home recently, and when we went around a corner,
this is what we found on the road. Actually, there were four huge turkeys slowly walking on the
road. First time in my life for such a scene. We stopped and waited until they moved off
the road. One never knows what one may find on the roads in our part of the country. I guess
they felt safe knowing Easter was the upcoming holiday and not Thanksgiving:)
My talented sister-in-law is known for her delicious deviled eggs. She is requested to bring them
to each family dinner. This time though, she had three "peeps" in the top bowl. I thought it
was such a cute idea and knew you might like it too.
Speaking of good ideas, look how she did her carrot, in decorating the dip on the relish tray.
Another creative idea in jazzing up a plate of food.
Our grandchildren took part in the Easter program, at their little country church. My husband
and I enjoyed it so much! Here our granddaughter in her role as an angel at the tomb of Jesus,
sang with two other friends. I must admit, I was pleased at how beautiful the song sounded,
from the three pretty angels!
After the church service, I snapped this picture of my husband and his grandson, walking and
talking on the trail by the side of the church. It seemed like they were intense in their
conversation, and I found myself wondering what they were talking about? Rare, treasured
moments of life.
While waiting for dinner to be served, I watched my daughter and her daughter, playing
"hangman" together. My thoughts were numerous yesterday, as I observed four generations in one
kitchen, my mother, me, my daughter, and her daughters, and thought of the many Easter
celebrations that we all went through together, over the years. Another one of those treasured moments.
They had performed in their church Easter program, they had eaten the Sunday meal, they had been
running in the field, and then they had a small Easter egg hunt. What a busy day for these
little ones. Finally, time to inspect and taste their egg hunt finds.
Miscellaneous moments make up the days, hours, and minutes of our every week. Some of them
stick with us for a lifetime, and some are forgotten soon after they happen. But, today, as
my mind is reminded of the Boston Marathon bombing that took place a year ago on this
exact day, I want to be conscious of the people and the moments that make up each day, and
I never want to take them for granted. Moments and those who comprise them, are all truly
gifts in the tapestry of our lives.
Let someone you love, know that they matter today.
You all matter to me! Thanks for stopping by.
I close this post, with a quote from a book on my shelf,
titled, "If Only I Knew", by Lance Wubbels;
"If Only I Knew...
that I was caught in a trap
of living for tomorrow
and a future that existed
only in my imagination,
I would have slowed my pace,
drawn boundaries around my work,
and taken time for the people I love."
Wow! This sure spoke to my heart again today, and I pray for it to imprint my mind
throughout this coming week.
