It got me to thinking, not just about how much I love my wife, but how much I enjoy spending time with her. That fleeting moment of connection across three lanes of interstate traffic is all I will have of her until this evening. I spent the night working while she was sleeping, and I'll sleep while she works today. But that moment was enough to make my day a little brighter.
At the risk of taking the mush over the top, I have to say that we should all look for the fleeting moments, and treasure them. They're worth more than we think.
