Treasuring a tiny package received in the mail

There is always one moment in my day that somehow glints out from all the other moments. It's often unplanned and unanticipated. I am sure that as a child, I had many more of these moments, since much more of my day was unplanned and unanticipated. Although, I am trying to notice these moments as they occur; and at the same time, allowing them to fade away into the day. So, when opening my tiny package and reading the miniature card, a felt a flush of emotion. I sat down. I gave the moment its due. I didn't rush it. And for that, I am glad. For today was not mundane. Today, I treasured a tiny package I received in the mail.


  1. I think it's also true that these moments happen more frequently in childhood because much more of life is new and fresh during childhood - childhood is full of magic ..

  2. Yes. And somehow, some way I want to bring that magic into the present. In simple day-to-day ways. It's just something worth cultivating.
