Reverb10–December 3

December 3 – Moment. Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors). (Author: Ali Edwards)

Wow.  This feels almost overwhelming.  Most alive.  It seems like it should be some big colossal feat like climbing a mountain or the birth of a child or something.  The truth is we live pretty intentionally around here where an effort is made to make each moment count.  Our motto is “Life is Good”.  But sometimes it is the little moments that make us feel alive, that remind us how good it is to be alive. 

I think it would have to be the first time my son brought me flowers.  He was playing in the back yard and I was watching from the deck.  All of a sudden he was in front of me, dandelions in hand, “Flowers for YOU mama!” he said so proud.  And I felt alive, and proud to be his Mama, and loved so deeply.
