Musings From A Musical Mind

Frozen Moments in Time…

This last weekend my daughter got married.  There was so much to take in – and I didn’t want to miss ANYTHING.  Sometimes we get over stimulated and we are not able to really exist “in the moment”.

I have many “moments” in my life that will forever be imprinted there – like an old black and white photograph.  They stay with me – no matter how much time goes by – and each new day there is the possibility of yet another one of those – because sometimes life just “happens” and we are not aware of the impact when right there in the moment.

Some of my moments are:

– asking Jesus into my heart – looking out my window when I was four years old

– driving my parent’s car to high school for the first time after getting my license

– going to a bon fire in the woods with friends

– singing at “All State” choir

– one drama performance where I had to wait under covers onstage

– sitting at Juanita Beach after sunset with my boyfriend

– driving to Snoqualmie Falls in my boyfriend’s jeep

– saying “goodbye” to my boyfriend in the parking lot when going away for 3 weeks the summer of 1978

– high school graduation singing with my choir

– singing at the moon and taking a stroll with Greg – when I first met him

– knowing Greg was “the one”.

– walking down the aisle at my wedding and looking up at how beautiful           everything was

– Ashlee being born – they put her on my chest and she looked at us with her big eyes

– watching Ashlee walk for the first time

– Shawn being born – humming the Brahm’s Lullaby to him when everyone was gone

– watching Shawn walk for the first time

– singing at my Grandmother’s funeral

– pulling into the driveway of our home – before buying it

– crying with Ashlee in her bed after she had a rough breakup

– being at “The River” in Ellensburg with a special friend

– opening night of any theater production I’ve directed

– watching my best friend lose her husband to cancer – standing at the graveside

– hugging a good friend in my driveway last December – remembering the tears and light mist as we stood there

– going through a traumatic situation last winter – seeing first hand the power of prayer and of God in our lives

– watching my daughter try on her wedding dress for the first time

– seeing Ashlee on her wedding day – at the other end of the hall with her Dad – blowing her kisses

– watching Greg and Ashlee dance to “Unforgettable” at the reception

– seeing Ashlee and Drew “off” after the wedding – (see picture below)

What are your “frozen moments in time”?  I know you have many.  Enjoy them – they are what make your life unique.  I pray they are mostly joyful memories – filled with laughter and happy tears.

God Bless
