Moments that matter...

January is always a good month for reflection, for thinking about the year that has passed and planning for the year ahead too. Photos are a really good way to think about the past and remember happy times.  I know I don't take nearly enough photos these days, I really need to get myself a decent camera. Many of the happy times last year were over the summer - it gets pretty cold in winter in our part of the world and we pretty much hibernate in our house until March. We had some happy times on holiday in France - swimming every day, picnics, wine, boat rides and just spending time together. Something we probably don't do enough of. I've been invited to take part in Lloyds Bank moments that matter and I've been thinking carefully about what makes a moment matter and how to make more of them. Sometimes when you have young children, it almost becomes that it's not worth going out at all, since it often end up being either stressful or expensive, or worst of all, both.

It sounds cliche, but  quite obviously the moments that matter the most are those spent with people you love - but it's not always about people who "love" you - it's also about spending time with people who have your best interests at heart.  One of the best things about being in your thirties is knowing the difference between the two. Having children has created lots of moments that matter - they are usually stressful moments that matter, but they are important nonetheless. Hopefully as our children grow older the moments that matter will grow and the stress will desist. Hopefully.

What are your moments that matter?
