Perfect Moment Monday: Some Kind of Promise, Part 1

Perfect Moment Monday is sponsored by Weebles Wobblog and is described as "...noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between." I think it's a great way to make us all more mindful of the good things that happen to us. There's always at least one perfect moment...!

This week's PMM is going to be breif because I have to work late tonight, and I will never make the linky deadline to share it with everyone if I try to tell you the whole story. And I do want to share it with everyone, because something tells me it will make most of you feel the way it made me feel. So I have chosen to give it to you in 2 parts. Part 1 is represented by the two photographs below. I receieved them in an email last week after many, many email exchanges with several people, after years of half-assed-ly trying to come through on a word I gave in answer to a question, never thinking at the time that I was essentially making a promise to a young boy, after years of feeling guilty that it had taken me so long to follow through on something because, even though my heart was in the right place, it was so easy to get caught up in my own life.

Looking at them makes me happy because I finally accomplished something I have been trying to do for so, so long. More importantly, well... you can see why when you copmpare the two photos, I dont even need to explain this one. And I wanted to rush to share them with everyone, even though I can't give you the whole story until next week, because I suspect they will make you happy, too.
