“Life isn’t a matter of milestones, but of moments.”

–  Rose Kennedy (1890 – 1995), American philanthropist and the matriarch of the Kennedy family, mother of a president, senators 

February 16, 2021 is a big day at Heston House.

We’ll have a “milestone” birthday in the family and the Senior Night basketball ceremony (weather permitting) for The Tallest of The Three.  Difficult to believe that there’s just one tournament run ahead after many miles and moments along the way to the latter milestone.

In reflecting on these, and other “milestones” the context causes me to wonder if we focus too much on the milestones at the expense of the moments in between them.

I bet we do.

Should we party and celebrate the big days, the anniversaries, the milestones along the way?  Of course we should.

We should probably celebrate the moments in between, too.  If not in a grandiose way, at least in an overt moment of “Hey, that was good.”

  2. Moments like sharing a glass of wine with a good friend and just catching up to say “Hi!” Funny how simple that was at one point in time…and how much I miss those moments now!!
