On the 4th Monday of each month we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. The next Perfect Moment Monday event will be on November 28.
To participate in Perfect Moment Monday:
Follow Write Mind Open Heart.
Between the Sunday night before and the Sunday night after, write up your own Perfect Moment.
Perfect Moment #1: He sits me down with a seriousness that scares me. We had a argument yesterday and I worry that this is about that (which was resolved, or so I thought, earlier yesterday). I sit down next to him and I worry. And then he shows me his lucky gaming die. He has had it since he was thirteen. He wants me to carry it for luck until I get a job. It is one of his most precious material possessions and he is giving it to me solemnly because he knows that I have been feeling downhearted about the job hunt. Well, now I have Luck +20.
Perfect Moment #2: She has gotten the bag of leaves we collected. Not sure what she is going to do with them (I really want to save them for waxing). I reluctantly have given her the bag and I await destruction of the precious few leaves we have gotten this year. And then she neatly starts laying them out on the kitchen floor. She is displaying them and counting them. She is marveling at them. And she handles them as if they are miracles...which I guess they are.
Perfect Moment #3: He makes his way across the cemetery on a cool autumn day. He is tall and lanky and walks with purpose through the old tombstones and he pauses to look at the inscriptions. He is alone even though we as a family are with him. And I am reminded of myself walking through cemeteries and old gardens. His sister runs up to him and he grabs her hand and they walk further up the hill together.
