I am sitting at the sidewalk below the Byblos fortress, the sun is setting, it was raining all day and the rain seems to have subsided. I can hear the soothing sounds of the waves gently massaging the rocks below my feet. A couple is sitting a bit further than where I am sitting, they are also enjoying the sunset. A man is walking his dog, another is just walking around aimlessly.
I look at the sun, it’s rays blind me for a minute or two, then after a while, I get to see the sun naked, I can see the whole perfect circle, as I focus on it, I can see a circular light turning around it, it’s as if someone if flashing a light behind the sun. I don’t know when was the last time I looked at a sunset.
Today was a good day, even though I woke God knows how many times to the beeping sounds of Christopher’s oxygen machine, I woke up in a good mood. I had a presentation about self-organization to a group of around a 100 students, I wasn’t fully prepared as I’d wish I was, but I was ready, my brother Michael passes by to pick me up, we took coffee for the road, then we were on our way to my presentation.
When the presentation started, I was fully ready, I forgot how little sleep I had, forgot that I could have prepared my intro a bit more and just did what I do best… Share my experience on Self-organization.
The presentation was successful, I was proud, I was able to share my knowledge with several students whom I am hoping tmi have touched their lives with as little as one advice.
I then get 30minutes of uninterrupted time with my brother as we savour some chicken brosted, both of which I haven’t done in a while (seeing Michael uninterrupted and eating brosted chicken) then head to my next meeting in Byblos which was also a success.
As soon as my meeting ended, I felt a peace linger in my soul. I was in Byblos, the sun was setting and I didn’t have anything pressing to do. That’s when I decided to enjoy the moment and spend a minute or two by myself.
The sun has now set, the church bell rings, I have enjoyed what little time I took for myself, now my motherhood duty is calling and I have two gorgeous babies waiting for me at home.
I stand up, take a deep breath, thank God I am alive, I actually also thank him for all the blessings that he has gracefully offered me. I walk slowly to my car and remember that life is all about these tiny little moments…
When was the last time you enjoyed the moment?!
