Day 3: A Moment in Time - Tell us about one moment that you lived in 2011 that you will never forget.
I like this prompt. It made me stop and think. There were a lot of moments in 2011 that I took and respected them for what they were, something that I am experiencing for only that moment in time and that wouldn't be recreated or replicated or ever experienced in exactly the same way ever again. Some were good, some were not so good. Either way, I'm glad I finally have some awareness of that fact.
I could go with the heartfelt, tragic moment when my grandmother almost passed away while I was standing beside her holding her hand in the emergency room late one night. I could go with silly, when the princess and I were singing our hearts out to Lady Gaga with the windows down and the stereo blasting on a gorgeous, sunny summer afternoon. I could go the shenanigans route, when Fireman and I had the hottest, anything goes, hours long sex where we pushed boundaries and left no area unexplored. I have so many currently memorable moments, all are treasured but most will be forgotten sooner rather than later.
Instead of singling out one moment and writing a long dissertation on it, I am going to remember the small, but poignant moments collectively and be glad for the year I have been lucky to have.
