Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

I’ve been thinking a lot about the fleeting moments in our days, and in our lives. The quiet, precious moments between the ones we love.  Cheri – The Daily Post

In a new post created specifically for this challenge, share a moment that means Fleeting to you.

May in the Pacific Northwest can bring snow, rain, wind and occasionally a beautiful, warm evening.  We had one of these rare nights a few weeks ago and I couldn’t resist the chance to hurry to the beach after dinner for a beautiful sunset with my family.  We walked barefoot in the sand, watched boats and kayakers cruise through the calm waters, skipped rocks and saw the final moments of the sun as it set behind the Olympic Peninsula.  A fleeting moment we will always remember.

  1. Your pictures are lovely. I was thinking of the transitory nature of things today as one of our younger daughter’s friends was killed in Philadelphia earlier this week when a building being demolished fell on the Salvation Army Store where she was shopping with a friend. She was only 24. It reminds me to care for my family and friends every day as if it were my/their last. (Your pictures weren’t morbid, but the beauty of the time together with family in a beautiful place made me think of this and how sad her parents must be.)



    1. Oh I am so sorry to hear your daughter’s friend was one of the people shopping in the Salvation Army Store. This was such a sad thing to hear on the news. I always feel thankful when we have the good fortune of a quiet moment like this together because as you said above we must care for family and friends as if each day was their last. I appreciate your comments today.


      1. Thanks very much. I sent her the link about the building collapsing and said I was thankful she wasn’t around there. She sent me an email this morning, saying the school had sent out an email notifying them thather friend had been one of those who died. It’s terrible and there seems to be negligence involved, which makes it even worse.
