om [one moment] meet up

I'm excited that so many of you want to participate in this meet up.  I appreciate your comments and have enjoyed reading your moments and feeling your enthusiasm.  Thank you!

In anticipation of this first official One Moment meet up (I know many of us started last week), I've found myself searching all week for special "moments." This is a great thing, right?!  It doesn't at all surprise me, that my moment came yesterday morning while dropping E (my 8yr old) off at school. Many of my moments are revealed through him as I've posted in the past.

As E left the car and headed to the school door, he approached a classmate and greeted him with a pat on the back. His friend, in turn, did the same to him. That was it. Nothing more. Just a pat and then they both ran in to the school.

To see such young kids perform this warm gesture was moving. It immediately reminded me of the importance of acknowledging our friends, family, other people with even a small gesture of saying, "hey, what's up, buddy?" 

So what was your moment this week?

  1. Hi Linda,
    Found you via Candy at Candied Fabrics and so glad I did. Been reading your posts and I'm just going to have to subscribe :)

    Thanks for coming up with OM and I love your moment this week. Simple, but meaningful.

  2. Aww...our boys get bigger and bigger, how nice to have that moment!

  3. what a truly simple yet beautiful moment... one that could have easily been taken for granted! thanks for sharing!

    bon weekend :)

  4. Watching childern have thoses moments is amazing.

    Yesterday my husband and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary, and I realized that when we are walking together he still seeks out my hand to hold when we are out together. Something I don't think about much, but means so much.

  5. Happy anniversary! Yes, the sought hand is wonderful after several years of marriage. A small gesture with huge impact!

    Thanks for participating everyone! Have a great weekend!

  6. I went to the salon to get my hair cut & colored and was telling my stylist, Stacey, that its been a rather rough week. She said that someday soon I may get lucky and find a flying pig at my door. Then she proceeded to tell me that she and her girlfriends each have something with a flying pig (a picture, bank, pillow, etc) pictured on it. It reminds them that anything is possible with the help of each other. I spent the rest of the day imagining all kinds of flying pigs, life's grand possibilities, and smiling peacefully :) Thanks Stace!

  7. My moment is now up. I hope it's ok to do these on Mondays rather than Fridays ;-)
