Extraordinary moments

When we watch some movies or dramas, and we see the story of those people who have just fallen in love and how extraoridnary every situation is, we forget that we've all had some extraordinary moments with our spouses also, when we first met them, when we are first courted, when we profess our interest to each other, when we were proposed etc. 

If you focus on each of those moments, your thoughts and feelings and the situations surrounding those moments, you'll find that they are extraordinary as in some of the scenes.  Of course only without slow motion and background music.   You can improvise and add them in your memories.

Even now there has been some extraordinary moments, which we let slip without a thought or any sense of appreciation, but we go 'ooh and aah' when it's portrayed in the movies.

It's time to reflect back with gratitude to God about our own lives and our own extraordinary moments.

Of course we must be grateful to our great Creator, appreciating the many special moments. The danger is a slow shift towards becoming a draemer.

Pakcik, alhamdulillah.. in fact I should learn to identify current 'extraordinary moments' too - those that we now take for granted.

I like how as we become older - and hopefully wiser - we see things in a broader perspective - something that is beyond what the younger minds can encompass simply because they haven't had the experiences. Thanks for the reminder pakcik. :)
