Have you ever thought about all the glorious moments that happen amongst the symphony of beeps? Here’s how INTERAC Flash is helping me keep pace with my wonderful, busy, wouldn’t change a thing life.
I live with a dancer. My 15 year old daughter. Among the many things she has taught me is that there is a whole other world out there and it’s name is “Dance”. Dance competition weekends are fierce, fabulous and fast. They are adrenaline filled and all consuming. They are a way of life. We are now a full fledged Dance Family. This past weekend, was our first big dance competition of the season and it did not disappoint. It was exhausting, exciting and over in the blink of an eye.
The morning of the competition, my daughter and I were up at the crack of dawn, bags packed and we hit the road. We programmed the GPS and made a quick stop for gas and a pack of gum *beep*. Then we had a smooth two hour drive to our dance venue. Only one stop extra along the way. Coffee and cookies were required. *beep* We seamlessly checked into our hotel *beep*, unpacked all that dance gear, did hair and make-up, and prepared for an epic weekend of performances.
As my daughter dashed off to rehearse her first number I purchased a program *beep* and selected my seat. With a big sigh I was ready to take in the magic of these young artists who have been preparing for this weekend all year long. Is it wrong that I was the one with butterflies? One by one the elegant dancers took the stage, pouring their hearts and souls into their performances. The audience cheered them on, the dancers bowed gracefully. 500 acts packed into one spectacular three day event.
Breaks throughout the dance competition allowed for some incredible Mother/Daughter time, moments that I know I will treasure forever. Long walks through new neighbourhoods, stops for frozen yogurts *beep*, chats with friends, and pictures, lots and lots of pictures.
Before long, the weekend was over and it was time to pack up the car once again, head home and back to reality. Unpack that dance bag and start preparing for the next big dance competition that will be here before we know it.
This weekend, like so many others, whipped by in a flash. Goals were met, adventures were had and sweet memories were made. I’m thankful for each and every one. Each step of the way INTERAC Flash kept pace with my busy life and helped me move seamlessly though my weekend. Saving me time in payment moments so I could move on and savour all of life’s other moments being measured by a symphony of glorious beeps.
I will continue to use INTEAC Flash in my every day and make the most of every beep….because life shouldn’t have to wait.
