Moment 1: Standing in the Barn during my wedding late at night.
I took one moment to stand apart from everyone and take in the moment. Thinking to myself… this is MY day. And just being filled with such gratitude and joy for all the people who made that day the BEST day. I will never forget standing there and being filled with such pure love and joy.
Moment 2: Pep talk from my cousin Carmen
I was at a high school dance. I had been shut down or pushed out of a group and was feeling bad about myself. My cousin Carmen came over and gave me the best pep talk. She basically let me know that I was awesome and everyone else’s opinion did not matter (she used shorter words that rhymed with curse words… or maybe they were just curse words). Long story short… someone who I loved and admired told me I was worth all the awesomeness.
I know the challenge is to write two moments, but I have so many. So many special memories of my amazing family. Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Siblings and Parents… have all blessed me with their time and love. I am a blessed human and having to choose just two moments reminds me how very blessed I am… because I have HUNDREDS of special moments.
