that you wished you could flash-freeze it and keep it stashed away forever? Something that you could fish out of storage and re-visit it, to re-experience its perfection again?
I just had a moment like that. After not sleeping well last night, I had a little something to eat for breakfast, and chose to go back to bed. (I'm retired. I can do stuff like that.)
After waking up, I got dressed, made up my bed, and wandered out to check on the rest of the household. I located and interacted with my precious DH, my senior cat, and last but not least, my "baby" cat.
The kids are all grown up and out on their own, so this is my family now. With all of them accounted for, I feel a quiet, pervasive contentment. No worries, nothing to be afraid of, nothing to dread. In this moment, everything is the way it's supposed to be.
I know from experience that it can't stay like this, because that isn't the nature of our human lives. But for the moment, I'm as content as any gazillionaire out there. Wow.
