Cherished Moments

There are moments in my life that stick out more than others. These moments are always centered around the people and places that I love. The first time I held my husband's hand, the first time I held my new baby, watching my little girl and my husband play with toys in the local bookstore. Simple moments but they are truly cherished moments in my life.

And then there are the big moments. Graduating from college, first steps, promotions...so many moments, yet these are the moments that create lasting impressions. Sometimes these moments are fleeting while other times they are more pronounced and drawn out. What is most important is that we take the time to notice and cherish.

I am finishing up a gift for a pair of grandparents right now. It is a quilt with memories and pictures of their lives "thus far". I love doing gifts like this because there is much thought and preparation involved. These are the gifts that take cherished moments and bring them back to our everyday awareness. When we remember the good times we work harder to create better futures.
