This got me thinking...
It may be the big moments in life that seem important, but it is in the small moments when we really live our lives. I mean really... Think about it...
Do you remember your graduation day or your wedding day. You looked forward to it, you planned for it, you experienced it and then it was over. Do you remember how quickly it passed? Do you remember thinking, 'boy that was over too fast'?
It was kind of a let down when all the fuss was done, because we don't live in those moments.

There wasn't a let down following those moments. You didn't think, "boy that was over too fast." No, I bet you said, "we need to do that again." Can you imagine saying that after your wedding or graduation? "Gee, honey, that was fun, we should do that again next week." No, you don't say that because the big moments usually only happen once.
We don't live in the big moments. We live in the small moments. That's why we have to savor them and enjoy them. We need to make the small moments as special and meaningful as the big moments.
Have you ever heard people talk about couples who had beautiful weddings. They planned everything down to the last detail, and everything was perfect. The bride was beautiful, the groom was handsome, the meal served at the reception was delicious... Then a year later you hear that bride and groom complaining about how unhappy they are and about how they're thinking about getting a divorce. Those couples were living for the big moments. They made sure the big moment (their wedding) was perfect, but they didn't plan for the small moments (their marriage).
That's why today's post is about the Small Moments... Live in the small moments, because there are a lot more small moments in life than big ones.
