I recently saw Arianna Huffington on several talk shows talking about her book “Thrive” which talks about redefining the meaning of success in all aspects of our lives. Each time I saw her she always mentioned a quote from her mother which has stuck with me. The quote was “don’t miss the moment”. As women of a certain age, we tend to multitask to the max. We are always doing something, trying to get to the next level. Our minds are constantly thinking about the next thing. While we talk to someone, we are texting another, and the cycle goes on and on. We need to stop because we will miss many moments. I stopped because the moment was “special”.
My youngest invited her sister and nephew over to a giant Easter Egg Hunt that would be held in Dallas. She also invited my sister and I to attend. So in the heat of the day with all the traffic that Dallas has to offer we were off to hunt Easter Eggs. I went to see Honey’s baby having fun because I didn’t want to miss the moment. It was wonderful, and it may never come again.
