5 Fabulous Moments
1-My kids have provided me with amazing moments over the years, from holding my last child who weighed a little over 2 lbs at birth, watching my 3 eldest practice martial arts and obtain their black belts, to seeing my son perform onstage for the first time (singer/songwriter/musician).
2-Working with people who have MS, I developed a program to help them maintain and regain mobility, and during our Christmas dinner, my group (including a woman who had been confined to a wheel chair for 9 years) stood and danced before entire room.
3-Teaching martial arts, watching so many different people (young, old, talented, challenged, boy, girl) learn and evolve. Seeing their expressions when they succeed.
4-Flying a plane for the first time.
5-Sitting with my grandmother on the front porch of her house, and watching her stare out at the mountains and lake. She did this every day, but every day it was as though she was seeing it for the first time. She truly appreciated the beauty that surrounded us.
5 Things I Love
1-Playing music, being part of a band or orchestra, the way the music flows right through you.
2-Smelling snow in the air, and watching the first snow fall.
3-Crisp automn air, wearing thick wool sweaters and being surrounded by the mountains of many colors. Making the first fire of the season...with its wonderful smell.
4-Getting lost in a good book.
