Moments That Took My Breath Away

“Life is not about how many breaths we take,

rather the moments that take our breath away.”

  • A crimson sun dropping into a diamond sparkled sea
  • The brilliant cardinal who graces me with his presence in the holly tree outside my kitchen window—I am certain it is Steve.
  • Hearing Amazing Grace
  • Walker, my grandson, gazing into my eyes and saying “Mimi, I love you sooooo much.”
  • My daughter, Leslie, on her wedding day
  • The night my son Marc called across the hall to me before going to sleep  “Mom, thanks for being a concerned parent.”
  • Leslie, Marc, and Steve took my breath away—love at first sight.
