Golden Moments

Thinking about Thursday

For the next 5 minutes, I am having a golden moment. That rare occurrence in time when everything that absolutely has to be done is complete.

My world is like a sky (stay with me, I'm feeling philosophical here.) Most of the time the sky is cloudy with rays of sunshine poking through. The clouds are white, puffy, floaty types. Things that are always there (laundry, dishes, trying to figure out how to serve the kids breakfast in the morning without any milk~ You know what I'm talking about, right?).

But, there is almost always a storm cloud in the distance. I can hear the faint rumble of thunder, see streaks of lighting. That is the cloud of Do-it-now-or-else.

Right now, in this moment, that cloud is gone. Blown away by the wind of determination. It will be back tomorrow. I don't doubt that for a minute, but today, I'm going to sit back and enjoy some time in the sunshine.

What are your golden moments like?
