Perfect Moment Monday: Growth
That's a picture of a bamboo sprout. It sits in the guest bathroom at my in-laws.
I wish I could go back in time and show you what it did look like. It was just a tiny little sprout back in the summer of 2004. That's the first time I saw it.
So when I was visiting my in-laws last week, I really noticed how much it had grown. I hadn't really paid attention to all the times over the past few years that I have been around this plant...
I remember moving it out of the way to put on makeup before my bridal shower in 2005.
I remember watering it when I was there for Christmas one year.
I remember knocking it over as I turned on the faucet to brush my teeth.
I remember throwing away a dead leaf, along with a tissue I had used to blot my tears I didn't want anyone to see.
I remember placing it by the window so I could lay out my fertility medication for the weekend.
I remember counting its leaves at 3am when I was changing O-man on the bathroom floor.
I remember taking this picture, as I watched the Oman push open the door to see where I was.
It was definitely a Perfect Moment....taking the time to remember even the smallest thing can trigger memories.
