Moment by Moment


Moment by Moment

… just some nice thoughts for the new year …

2am: my wife and I are awoken by a neighbor’s car horn blaring across the street.

I think the cat’s still asleep at the bottom of the bed.

We both get up and check out the situation.
Others are trying to silence the car outside.
I make a quick call, and our local police inform me they already know and are sending a truck.

The car horn stops.

… silence …

We both get back into the warm bed, and the cat moves over to lay on my left foot.
My wife rolls over to hold me and drool on my shoulder.

… moment …

… so nice …

I burn it into my memory.

This year, I will have many more moments.

With a bit of luck, I will save a few to cherish in the future…

  1. Wow,Joe, this was really sweet. I sincerely wish you many more of these moments in the coming years- cherishing is a rare talent, I think.
    (I feel closer to San San as a result of this post- I, too, drool on my husband’s shoulder regularly 🙂
    Love you,
