In that moment the all the rest, the mess, the work, the mud and hair, the aching muscles, the spilled drinks and stolen steak, become the things you yearn for. Each and every moment is a fallen leaf, that will never be again until finally the tree is left bare with only a memory of what it was to blossom.
This made me tear up. Everything in this post. Whenever I think they are frustrating me for whatever reason I always think of a way to make it a precious memory.
