It's Just a Moment

Over the last couple of days U2's "Stuck in a Moment" has come on the radio/ iPod several times, kind of reinforcing my whole "get over yourself and on with it and while your at it, be happy" idea.

Some of the lyrics that keep running through my head:

And you are such a fool
To worry like you do
I know it's tough
And you can never get enough
Of what you don't really need now, my, oh my

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it
Oh love, look at you now
You've got yourself stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if our way should falter
Along the stony pass
Its just a moment
This time will pass


Yesterday, for the first time, Gracie started "properly" crawling (and if she has done it before at daycare, I don't want to know about it).  It was one of those bittersweet moments, way more sweet than bitter, that reinforced that it's all just a moment.  This time will pass, and I want to be present for every second of it.

  1. Praying that you don't stick too long in the "bitter" moments and stick longer in the "sweet" ones! :)
