    Moments, such infantisimile measures of time, can often occupy large spaces of your mind.
    The moment you realized that there was great pain in the world.
    And the real difference between a boy and a girl.
    Moments, fragmented hours that represent personal and world history. Laughter, joy and sometimes misery.
    Moments can be wasted, tasted and devoured.
    Poured out ,drank up, laid in or showered.

    Moments of sadness, madness and gloom, feeling lonely in a crowded room.
    The moment you realize that the final committment is near.
    And you soon will unite with the one you hold dear.
    Trite little arguments about flowers and seating.
    All the time...Moments are fleeting!

    Moments, in time represent someones first and last.
    Someones future and someones past.
    Finding and hoping , then losing again.
    Crossroads and life changes, messing with your brain.
    Moments of uncertainty which way did I go last.
    That was the past...
    Moments of recollection help me find new direction.

    Moments, resurrecting ghosts long buried, rise from the shadows, to make morning hurry. Moments of quietness, meditation and prayer, realizing you hold the power right :heart: there!
    Moments are so much more than they seem...they represent
    an hour in small little streams.

    WELCOME BACK! mslusciousb, I loved this reminder that every moment DOES count, and sometimes in a blink of an eye the world is changed. I expececially like the last two lines, But the ghost from the past line was a puzzle. Altogther a great lesson and read about how important any and all moments are. Thank you for this piece.

    Thanks Reason!

    I was deeply feeling every word and syllable, had to speak it out loud, speak it into being ya know...yeah,that one will be one of my mantra's lest I ever forget again in the hectic pace of living that moments are but fragments in time and even more precious!
    Blessings on Ya House!
