Don't let the moment go by.
I'm sitting here listening to music and thinking about my cat, Rudy. He got his annual shots a few days ago, and he's been feeling poorly ever since. I've been worried; he's 15 years old. I took him to the vet earlier this morning, and I had to leave him at the kitty hospital for tests. Worry, worry, worry--that's what I did all day long, until I got the call that his blood work looked good. The vet was going to give him a shot for his flu-like aches and pains, and she expects a full recovery in a couple of days.
It was a moment of pure joy and relief after I hung up the phone. And I decided not to let the moment go by too quickly.
My life is always stuck in high gear. Not complaining--I've designed it that way. But when I'm moving so fast, I tend to let the moments pass quickly, too. The moments--the pauses in my routine--things that get my full attention, that are emotion filled; I want to savor them.
When I feel like saying, "I love you," or when I feel like writing a note of thanks, or telling someone "I'm proud of you--good job," I'm not going to let the moment go by.
