Life is made up of moments…lots of them. We flit about like bees (if bees flit) from one activity to the next…but how many of these moments are magical to us?
Today I have a guest poem by my friend’s daughter, Gabbi. I love this poem’s message. When I read it, it touched me a lot, and I wanted to share. Gabbi hit the truth right on the crayon’s head!
Read it and see if you agree.
The Magic in a Moment. . .
By Gabrielle Pugmire
To find any magic in a moment,
All you need is love,
Or an empty piece of canvas,
Or the sun shining above.
There is magic in an evening,
When you spend some time together,
And the announcement is made,
“Will you stay with me forever?”
There is magic in a crayon box,
Never opened and brand new,
As you draw onto blank paper,
Using pink and green and blue.
There is magic in an afternoon,
While on a bike you ride,
And rays of sun shine down upon you,
And make you warm inside.
You can find the magic anywhere,
If you really want to see,
Just let your imagination fly,
And the magic will be free.
Magical moments…they’re all around, just waiting for us to discover them. We may have passed by some already, thinking they were too mundane and normal to be magical (like a box of crayons). I challenge you to open your eyes—like Gabbi’s poem teaches—and not take the moments in your life for granted.
I’d like to thank Gabbi for letting me share her awesome poem. It reminded me that most times we don’t have to look far to find the magical moments in our life. We just have to have our eyes open and be more aware.
