Laughing with somebody till the tears run down your cheeks.
Waking up to the first snow.
Being in bed with somebody you love.
Whether you thank God for such a moment or thank your lucky stars,
it is a moment that is trying to open up your whole life.
If you turn your back on such a moment and hurry along to business as usual,
it may lose you the ball game.
If you throw your arms around such a moment and hug it like crazy,
it may just save your soul.
