divine moments

George unwrapped a bar of chocolate. He hoped the sugar would make him feel better. The world was too hard to live in when he was sober, because everything felt precious. Like some devout follower of an obscure religion, he was moved to tears frequently by what he perceived as divine moments__ like rain on the window or the smell of apples, or a man reading a book with his daughter in the park; a flock of birds, the flash and clatter of a passing train, and the silent beauty of faces.

The above quote is from the book Everything Beautiful Began After, by Simon Van Booy. It takes my breath away as it reminds me of the incredible beauty found in what we may think of ordinary every day happenings. And too, this quote is a lovely reminder to savor the beauties of the day.
