Live in the moment

I want to document this moment and keep it close to my heart:

A lazy Sunday


Sitting on the couch playing a game on her phone, amber sits to my left. Red Hot hair in a messy bun. PJ's that are too big on her now that she's losing weight. 

Curled in a ball to her left, on the floor, lies Sammy. Tired and sleepy from a walk Willie gave him. 

Ice packs on my back,to help a spasm from the water ballon filing for Elizabeth's bday.  I use my TiVo app to record shows for the week. I am wearing clothes that, at one time, were too tight and now are too loose. 


I am playing pandora's young punk radio on my iPhone. Amber and I sing absentmindedly to our old favorites. Songs we will still know all the word to. 

I want to remember this moment. 

Amber's smaller hands holding a cigarette. 

Sammy's suddenly decides that underneath the sofa is more comfy. 

When I call for him, he crawls out and bolts to give me licks. 

How he twists in a ball an lets me kiss him. 

I want to remember how the air felt. The last days of summer are here. There's a lightness in the air that means fall is coming. 

I want to remember that moments like these are rare. I want to remember to seek these moments out. 

The simple act of being comfortable and peace in the air.
