It may have been playing catch with your Dad as a young boy, or the unexpected passing of a musical icon, something your Mom may have said to you as a little girl, or when 9/11 changed America. We all have certain moments which are now ingrained in our minds forever. These moments can often be shared by everyone, so closely at times that we can even remember where we were and what we were actually doing when the incident occurred. The list can become long, but the experiences never forgotten. For those of us who have children, we frequently share these events with them to provide an understanding of the impact this has had on our lives. A “moment” could be very personal, especially with your child. Whether it’s their first word, loss of a tooth, beginning of school, or when they walk down the aisle, the impact it has in our mind is everlasting. We can also miss out on “moments” with our children due to various circumstances, or the demand of our hectic schedules. We must never assume there will be “more moments” to experience, because our “final moment” could occur without notice.
A memory may last a life time, but a moment in time is endless….
