For example, the moment two days ago when April and I were screaming in the WalMart parking lot because it was so cold it felt like our faces were being ripped off and we were trying to stuff a 45 gallon tub into the back of the white taurus with three kids inside the the warm car like a luxury rocky ridge experience. Like the moment that I feel like I can't breathe because my sister Em makes me laugh so hard on the phone and it feels like she's here in the living room with Liv and I even though she's hundreds of miles away. Or the moment a few mornings ago when Liv got the apricot/apple/blueberry/chicken jar of baby food somehow on her eyelashes and just kept shrieking like she was the funniest thing every born. Or the moment last night where I accidentally laid Sister Waltons' coat over the burning candle without realizing it almost had our whole house on fire. Or the moment when I randomly get a text from my mom and I know she's missing me. Or the moment when I'm trying to scrape off our icy car with a plastic cutting board because I don't have a scraper and our neighbor comes over and does the whole thing for Liv and I so we can leave. Or the moment yesterday morning during scripture study where I felt the holy ghost teaching me something that I really needed. Or the moment when Garrett's mom called to give me a squash recipe and I love her consistent example. Or the moment last night just watching Garrett sleep in a non creepy way while I just laid in my bed and felt peace and so thankful for every single cell of my life. Like Elder Maxwell said, 'Moments are the molecules that make up eternity." I am so thankful for my molecules.
Moments don't last which is the tie in for this comic (mostly I just like the cartoon but think of it as motivation to seize the moments or shall I say carpe di molecules?)
