A Few of My Favorite Moments
I have a faulty memory. My family will attest to that and then probably tell you some lies about a golf cart and my dad... I'm just sayin'. But, even my faulty memory can't erase important moments in my life... those moments that are forever ingrained in my mind.
For instance, I remember the moment, in third grade, when I had lost the Spelling Bee. I stepped up and said, with a huge smile on my face, "Scissors, s-c-i-s-o-r-s, scissors," and confidently waited for them to tell me I had won. Instead, Gabby won that year because she was able to remember that damn double "s".
I also remember that moment, when I was walking down the aisle on my wedding day and I was desperately looking for Brian. His mother was standing in such a way that I couldn't see him right away. And then, I took a step, and there he was... looking gorgeous in his tuxedo and crying just a little. Then I looked at my bridesmaids and they too were crying. And the joy bubbled up out of me and I laughed... yes, as I walked down the aisle at my own wedding.
And then there was the moment I first saw/heard Evan's heartbeat. I'll never forget that one... the whoosha whoosha whoosha whoosha whoosha... nothing sounded better to me in my entire life.
And last night, there was another moment I will never forget. I was doing the dishes and Brian was entertaining Monkey. I looked over and this is what I saw:
My two favorite men reading a book together.
It's one of those moments that makes you realize you are exactly where you are supposed to be in your life doing exactly what you are supposed to be doing.
