Moment by Moment

One of the sisters recalls a visit into the city to see relatives... When we found her house what a reception we were given. We were all served some cold drinks (sodas and malted milks) and Aunt Lida announced that Mother was being named "Queen for the Day" and was presented with a golden crown. She then asked all of us to address Mother as "Your Magesty" for the rest of the day.

And tomorrow my 9 year old son is taking a 4 day trip with his grandparents for the weekend... off to create his childhood memories!

Today my 6 year old daughter is on a museum field trip with her aunt and cousins... (I finally got her winter curtains up!)
My youngest son and I will spend the day shopping with my mom.
Priceless pieces of our lives... just everyday moments. Teachable moments. Moments that add up to who they will be. Oh, write about them now, before the moment is gone. Someday your children will ask...


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day Polly...this was a very lovely post and thanks for the "reminders".

  2. You are so right -- the days tend to just blend together, and before you know it, they're off to college! Lovely post!

  3. I think more people need to stop and think~I am making memories of a lifetime for my child~
    I have no regrets with my son and I have wonderful memories of my childhood!
    Great post!

  4. Polly,

    Your posts are so well written and so thoughtful, I so enjoy stopping in to visit you!

    Big hugs,

  5. That all sounds so wonderful! You are absolutely right about the memories and kids asking.


  6. Very wise advise, Polly. The days fly by in a blur....we need to catch and preserve as much as we can before they slip away.

    I am loving the pictures and stories from your Mom and Aunts. The lady in the top photo, is she your Aunt? I think you look a lot like her.


  7. How fun! Queen for a day :-). I love it!

    The curtains are really pretty Polly!

  8. That's one of the reasons we started our blog....sort of an on-line diary about what is going on in our lives! We all need to remember that today is precious!

    smiles, kari and kijsa

  9. Oh time does fly...take joy in the little things as wonderful memories are being made. Sweet curtains for your daughter. Thank you for yet another lovely post. Linda

  10. So very true and sometimes we get so busy just doing things. The other day I just called my daughter and said let's go to the zoo with my granddaughter instead of doing whatever work around the house. Some days you just have to do that.

  11. Your words are so true. Our children grow up so fast. I am making a memory book now for our Grandaughter. Mary
