Prompt: 5 minutes. Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.
Soon the year 2010 will be gone. And 2011 will be here with a chance to make new memories, start new projects (hopefully finish more of them) and meet new friends or just spend more time with the ones we have. What I want to remember most about 2010:
The “road trips” with my daughters to our favorite Chinese restaurant – Mr. Chopsticks
The times my son would sit down and actually talk to us - discussing world topics, celebrity happenings or just whatever instead of holing up in his room to watch movies.
Everyone is so busy getting to work, going to class – those times we actually got to sit down for dinner together are priceless.
The day my oldest daughter got engaged – if my child is happy I’m happy. :)
Watching my youngest daughter play with her ‘puppies’ – rolling around on the floor with them she is not the ornery “Mom I know what I’m doing!” teenager-on-verge-of-adulthood. Just a sweet young girl enjoying the moment.
Plus all the moments i captured with my camera this year - some good, some not so good - but that's ok. I stopped to smell the roses, enjoy the magnificence of a sunrise/sunset and God's Glory in all of it. Thankful for this moment in time. Here are what i consider my best for this year. Since practice makes perfect - 2011 will definitely be something to look forward to:
All the rest is already a blur, a hodgepodge of the daily mundane activities that need to be done plus other moments I can’t recall in only 5 minutes.
And now it’s your turn, the timer starts now.
Happy New Year/Feliz Año Nuevo!!
