Framed by the branches of the newly leafed Oaks, the moon, and a smattering of stars hung artfully, like grand portraits, upon the celestial, night sky.  The slightest breeze shifted the muses out of frame, temporarily, and another was soon captured and admired.

Special moments are all around us, and when we stop to pay attention and revere, our lives are enriched, and at times, transformed.  Sometimes, it’s the little things that have the greatest impact –  a word, a look, a touch, a shared moment, and we should embrace them as they are fleeting.

This Sunday is Mother’s Day.  Take a moment to let your Mom know how much she means to you –  a simple gesture, a shared moment, or a kind word.  What could be simpler and more meaningful?  Mom’s are special people who deserve, at the very least, a special moment.
