All We Have is Moments

Several years ago, I met up with my sister in Montreal for Easter. We were both going through a hard time. Our father was very ill and we’d both spent a lot of our recent free weekends jetting back and forth between our homes and Thunder Bay to spend time with him.

But on this weekend we decided we needed to take a moment to look after ourselves instead, take a step away from our reality and enjoy a few carefree days of happy sister-time amidst the heavy darkness that was starting to engulfing our lives.

Old Montreal, Bubbles

This photo was snapped in Old Montreal and represents how fleeting moments can be and how nothing in this world is permanent. For an instant these bubbles graced us with their presence and then pop they were gone forever.

That is why it is so important to always find the joy nestled within the little things; for that is all that we have in life – a million moments strung together to make a whole.

This post was inspired by this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent
