Magical Moments

As you know, I certainly capture plenty of memorable moments with my family. But I guess they become memorable the minute that they are filmed. But what about magical moments?

My ear pods arrived in the post this morning. I was quite excited! Just one word really and that is BLISS!

I am presently sat in the living room on the sofa. I am listening to All Angels rendition of Mozart’s Canzonett Sill’ aria. And here I sit besides Gracie our dotty, doating Dalmatian. Wow, Mozart really could spin a tune, couldn’t he?

Gracie is lightly pawing me. It must be close to the dogs dinnertime, though she does the same when she wants her tummy rubbed.

I’m quite oblivious to the children in this moment. Tara and Aaliyah sit in front of the broken games cupboard smiling and laughing at Daddy’s iPad. Thor and Caleb are both also smiling, completely transfixed with Thor’s iPad. Both looking as if they are being helpful with one another and looking inquiring with the game that they are playing. Amritsar is kneeling at the coffee table drawing characters from her favourite television program. Daddy sits at the living room table, now his home office, head buried in his work and laptop combined. Did I say that I cannot hear anything, the music is bliss?

Amritsar realises that I cannot hear her – she is smiling. Now coming over! I am nodding my head and trying to look vaguely at her stare. Thor has just jumped down from where he sits and is also walking over. Caleb has started screaming, though I cannot hear him. Remus has blocked Amritsar’s path, himself making his way over to remind me that it is the dogs dinnertime. Thor has managed to establish himself on my lap, his iPad in hand. The song has finished, the moment gone!

Better get the dogs dinner and our lunch sorted for the troops. I enjoyed my magical moment!

  1. Sometimes it’s those magical little moments that help get us through the day!

    Magic ~

    Life’s little
    at times seem blackly tragic
    but see them in
    and they can disappear
    like magic !

    Enjoy your day, Andi

      1. Thank you, Andi.
        Your kind words mean so much!
        I actually woke up this morning feeling so very distressed over so many things and then I came to your blog and saw your post and I felt better and from your post my little poem came to me.
        So, thank you for the inspiration! 🙂
