From the Author
Seems like everyone has a schedule board in their kitchen these days with every block filled. I know we do at my house. I wrote A Moment in Time to remind myself and my family to distinguish what is really important at the end of the day. Time together. We need to treasure precious moments like baking cookies together, playing a board game or just quietly reading a book to a little one. My story depicts a family enjoying their time together -- the boisterous, joyous moments as well as the quiet, thoughtful moments.
