Remembering Moments

“Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.”

For the past week plus, My2ndHeartBeat World Headquarters has resembled a day care center. Our 2 grand kiddos were visiting and the quote above stayed with me the entire time. And, at the same time I kept my heart donor in my thoughts as he/she made these times possible. These times, these moments are precious, whether they are noisy or quiet. 

The following quote also stayed with me.

“We do not remember the days, we remember the moment.”

I tend to agree with this … the days with the little ones were whirlwind, fun, action packed days. I remember the moments, not necessarily any specific day. And another moment that I will never forget is the moment I truly learned I had someone else’s heart beating in my chest …… again, all due to that wonderful person who gave me the ultimate gift, the gift of life.

It truly pays to remember the special moments of our lives.

Thank God for ALL moments we have …. and enjoy each and everyone of them!!
