Word of the Week-Moments

I treated myself to a new book last weekend one that’s been on my wishlist for a while and it’s given me the perfect word for this week.

The book is called “What I Know For Sure” by Oprah Winfrey which is made up of the columns she wrote over 14 years for her magazine ‘O’. It’s pages are motivational and uplifting and one particular page about how this moment right now is all we can be sure of has inspired me to start appreciating and taking notice fully of several ‘moments’ of my own this week.sunsetCoffee is my first moment each day, I enjoy it while the rest of the house is sleeping and I appreciate the silence and peace at the start of each hectic day.

The Moon is my second moment, it was still visible in the sky on the morning school run this week and it caused so much excitement to my little ones. Jake ran all the way home shouting and waving to ‘Mr Moon’ and ‘Moony’ I watched him in wonder as he took absolute joy in the moment.

Warm Cuddles is my third moment, the temperature has certainly dropped this week and our night time routine has involved cuddling up under our huge duvet together to listen to the bedtime story, I love watching the children’s faces as they listen intently.

Hot Showers is my fourth moment, I’ve taken my time to notice all the sensations like how the warm water feels on my skin and the beautiful scents of the products I use.

Learning is my fifth and final moment, instead of rushing through Daisy’s reading and homework tasks I’ve taken time to fully appreciate the way she learns, listening to how she forms the words and her concentration as she tries to cut round the dotted lines with her little scissors.

What have your moments been this week ? leave me a comment I love hearing from you.

I’m linking up with Jocelyn from The Reading Residence for Word of the Week.

    I’ve always admired Oprah, will certainly watch out for that book or maybe hunt it down online 🙂 #wotw

    Enjoying the moments is a brilliant way to spend your week. I try to appreciate moments through the day before they slip away. May just be ordinary moments, but I still treasure them. Might take a look at Oprah’s book. I secretly quite like her and her ideas, although not too much at a time. #wotw

    That sounds like a great book to me. Children appear to be naturally connected to living in the moment. #WotW

    Enjoy that moment! Sometimes the little ordinary moments are just as important and memorable!
    I’m a big Oprah fan – I should check out this book!
