Quietly praying while doing the dishes. Feeling the peace surround you as you hand over anxious thoughts and worries to Someone who can actually take care of them. Realizing you were so involved in your prayers that the dishes are done, without the annoyance that usually accompanies this less than loved task.
The smile that comes when you have explained a new math concept exactly the right way. The light of understanding hits your daughter's eyes and the excitement that comes with it as she proclaims, "I am good at math."
Warm tea. Slightly sweet, but not so much that it is distracting. (I found the most amazing tea. I'll tell you about it soon, because everyone needs to try it.) Warm tea and a good movie. Something real. Something true that pulls you into the story and out of your day.
Reading a book. The music in your ear repeatedly interrupted by the laughter of girls chatting on the computer about books, music, word games, and the silliest of things. The feeling of love that overcomes you as you see your daughter reaching out, and a friend reaching back to her.
Opening up your email, messages, twitter, and facebook to see notes and snippets from friends. Praying through tough times. Rejoicing in the triumphs. Together. Holding each other up, and walking together through everything.
The burst of creativity that calls out to you, and bids you to write. The final period. Hitting publish.
I hope you find these, and many other moments of perfection, in every day.
They make this life beautiful.
