Family Celebrations

Life Is Special

Life is very special
For those with eyes to see,
The beauty that surrounds them
in their friends and family.
This treasure can't be measured,
It makes one rich beyond compare,
Crowning life with dignity,
For love and trust are gifts so rare.

~ Sylvia Fraser

If you're looking for ideas for celebrating, commiserating or you just want to get a few friends and family together, you'll find plenty of inspiration at specialmomentshome.

Life is made up of special moments which make it worth living...
There are many cherished moments that are missed due to the stress and fast pace of daily living...
We must slow down and remember how precious it is to be alive and to love...

The best things in life are the people you love, the places you've seen, and the memories you've made along the way.

Collect moments not things! Take time to cherish these special moments.

If you think positively,
Sound Becomes Music
Movement Becomes Dance,
Smile Becomes Laughter,
Mind Becomes Meditation
And Life Becomes A Celebration.......

Life is short, live it.
Love is rare, grab it.
Anger is bad, dump it.
Fear is awful, face it.
Memories are sweet
Cherish them...

Life's Special Moments Quotes

Life is filled with moments. You can give in to them or you can live in them. Live the moment.

Sometimes you will not know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. ~ Dr Seuss

A Special moment may last but a second... Yet the memory can live on Eternal

Collect memories, not things. Treasure time together. Value love. Encourage yourself. Be grateful.

It is in the silent moments we find our inner strength. Be still... and find peace.

Don't ever save anything for a special occasion. Being ALIVE is the special occasion.

Special Moments are always remembered

Some beautiful moments just last a few seconds but in your memories they will live forever.

May you take some special moments for yourself today and rejuvinate. ~ Mimi Luk

Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory.

Life has many unpredictable moments, many paths, and memorable times. So enjoy the surprises, explore new paths, and cherish the memories.

Although the days are busy and the workload is always growing, there are still those special moments when someone says or does something and you know you've made a difference in someone's life.
~ Diane McKenty

If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and it never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like living the moment all over again. ~ Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca

Nothing happens in life by accident. Nothing occurs by chance. Nothing takes place without producing the opportunity for real and lasting benefit to you. The perfection of every moment may not be apparent to you, yet that will make the moment no less perfect. ~ Neale Donald Walsch
