A Moment

It's hard, isn't it, especially for us Moms when we're thinking ahead of everything that needs to be accomplished, i.e., laundry, homework, dinner, dishes, blogging and so on, to actually stop and enjoy a moment sometimes.

Last night after chatting with my twin and while waiting for Miss M to return from gymnastics, I noticed the sky. Had it been this beautiful before and I just hadn't taken the time to see it?

The sun was setting and the sky was lit up with such beautiful colors. No gorgeous mountains or ocean around here, just the trees framing the beautiful sky on a lovely evening in September. And for just a moment, worries and rushing around stopped.

Beautiful! I had a very relaxing, calm evening last night it was great...just like the sunset. I am glad you were able to enjoy it.

Gorgeous sunset! Yes, there is so much to do sometimes we get caught up in accomplishing those things instead of enjoying the moment and all God has to offer!

I know exactly what you mean....we are surrounded by mountains and on some days I ask myself the same thing.
