Well, Mike, I took a break from my day and decided to dig into this. Didn't find anything that would directly answer your query, but I certainly found myself learning a lot about appreciating the moments of life, and I am grateful. I'll share a few things that caught my eye along the way:
Life is made of millions of moments, but we live only one of these moments at a time. As we begin to change this moment, we begin to change our lives. ~D. Trinidad Hunt
"Most time is wasted, not in hours, but in minutes. A bucket with a small hole in the bottom gets just as empty as a bucket that is deliberately kicked over." -- Paul J. Meyer

She showed that alertness, that swiftness of reflection comes out in men before a battle, in conflict, in the dangerous and decisive moments of life—those moments when a man shows once and for all his value, and that all his past has not been wasted but has been a preparation for these moments. ~ Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy
"Life is made up of moments, small pieces of glittering mica in a long stretch of gray cement. It would be wonderful if they came to us unsummoned, but particularly in lives as busy as the ones most of us lead now, that won’t happen. We have to teach ourselves how to make room for them, to love them, and to live, really live." — Anna Quindlen (A Short Guide to a Happy Life)
