We remember moments. We remember bed time stories and monsters under the bed. We remember laughing so hard we couldn’t catch our breath. We remember falling in love. We remember Christmas mornings and blowing out the candles on our birthday cake. We remember taking the training wheels off our bikes and the feeling of freedom.
We remember our first pet coming home and feeding the dog under the table. We remember our first sip of beer and our first all-nighter. We remember dancing in the front yard and singing on tables. We remember happiness deriving from the presence of others.
We take our moments for granted because we believe there will always be more.
