4/21 CC - An Ordinary Moment

4/21 CC - An Ordinary Moment

What is life but a series of ordinary moments strung together like a necklace? Unique, special experiences are the flashy gems that gain most notice, but everyday things ---a good book, a hot cup of coffee, a delicious meal --- are the foundation.

This was one of those ordinary moments. Mom, Dad and I had just eaten a meal together when I saw them glance at each other. In that look, I heard the echo of all the other ordinary moments they have shared together throughout their fifty-seven years of marriage. It made me smile.
