A Moment Like This

23 Aug

Last week my parents came to visit. On Wednesday, I left work early and my mom and sister headed out to eat lunch at the place I had my rehearsal dinner. We met my grandmother and a good family friend and had a wonderful lunch filled with laughter and amazing food.

After lunch we went to a local mill that had been turned into art studios. We strolled through all the different displays of paintings, photography and other various art forms. We laughed and talked constantly. After we saw the art we went outside to a little lunch truck that stays parked outside the mill. My grandmother ordered one of every dessert they had and we sat down on a small porch. While we were sampling the desserts a rainstorm swept through. I jokingly stated that I felt like I was in the movie Steel Magnolias (good movie but OMG SAD!).

As I sat there under the porch, eating desserts and talking with the women I loved most in my life, I couldn’t help but feel that overwhelming sense of happiness. Everything was perfect in that moment. It wasn’t an extraordinary event, but it is one that I will never forget.
