Magical Moments

Day 23    #SOL17

Our lives are filled with many magical moments.  They are treasured gifts that warm my heart when I am reminded of them.  The magic occurs as my senses are awakened  with the sounds, sights, tastes, scents or contact.  I relive the event and rejoice in who I became as a person, due that magical moment.

    A great list that captures many small moments. You could probably turn any one of them into a slice! You may have just brainstormed ideas for the rest of the month.

    Some of these would make fantastic slices. Getting my first library card was a pretty magical moment for me too! I just might need to write about that in a future slice!
