[Lullaby by Dixie Chicks]
We all have several moments throughout the day when we wish with all our might that we could literally stretch time.
What can we really fit into a single moment?
“…Life began when I saw your face…”
Well, let’s see. I have learned that in one minute, I can:
strip a bed covered in poo, strip a child covered in poo, start a load of laundry, and run a bath in the middle of the night without ever fully waking up
speed-dial a 14-digit telephone number to Afghanistan 3 times before I get a connection to wish my best friend ‘goodnight’
rinse, refill and reconnect a feeding-tube bag to a newborn without waking her or spilling (sometimes)
lose myself in a dreamy round of goodnight hugs and kisses…
sing a sweet lullaby to my babies
I have also learned that in a single moment, life can change forever in the most unexpected ways with the following words:
Your child has autism.
In less than a moment, you can unexpectedly change someone else’s life with the following words:
I love you.
So. If you can accomplish such things within a tiny, singular moment – imagine what can become of FOREVER.
Is forever enough?
It is when it’s LOVE.
