Perfect Moment Monday – Unconditional

I haven’t done this for a while!

Lori says that ‘Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one.’
Here is mine for this week….

This weekend’s gospel was that of the Prodigal son. I cantored at the Saturday mass. The hymns that were chosen were very pretty. I kept thinking about how there was an Indigo Girls song that would have been perfect….it is called ‘You and Me of the 10,000 Wars’. A line from it says ‘Still you held your arms open, for the prodigal daughter, I see my eyes in your eyes through my eyes, still waters….’

So on the way home from the store with the Zerker I put the song on because I really wanted to hear it. It has always reminded me of my that time in my life when I felt so out of place at home – felt like I had no home – and how we all seem to go through that as we grow up and move on.

I sang to my heart’s content – and the Zerker crooned with me – with her own style of lala baba lala…babble….and I looked into her eyes through the rear view mirror and I knew it was a perfect moment. I think I understood the actions of the father in the story of the Prodigal son for the first time.

    There are few things more perfect than singing at the top of your lungs a favorite and meaningful song with your loved ones.

    Awesome. Gotta look up that song.

    What a beautiful image. I love how you have translated the Zerker’s “lala baba lala…babble.”

    I love how you moved from the lyrics of seeing “my eyes through yours eyes” to looking in her eyes in the rear view mirror.

    That’s a beautiful line you quoted. Like LL, I think I’m off to find the song. :)
