dream moments...

There are moments in life that we wish would never end.  To freeze and live in them forever would be bliss and happiness, but would we appreciate them the way we do?  I remember the day I looked into my husband's eyes and promised my forever to him only.  That was a moment of overwhelming love and joy.  I liked it.  Since then we've had many moments worth freezing.  Whether it's just random fun here at home, or watching our daughter do something for the first time, these moments blow in and out of our days and are breathed in like the first smell of fresh Spring air.

I had one of those moments last night.  Amia was having a rare rough night, so I had lain with her on the couch.  One would think that the moments of watching her sleep in the dim light which crept up the stairs was it, for it was perfect.  But it got more perfect.  She awoke and in a dazed state of wakefulness pulled very closed to me smiling, then kissed me.  After climbing up to lie on me, she raised her head once more to say, "Hi," and offered another kiss before returning to her dreams.  

I sighed with satisfaction and thanked God for this sweet memory.

Do you have a dream moment to share?
