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

“There is a defining moment in every person’s life. Within that moment, everything that that person is, shines its brightest.”

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)

1. What have been some of your deciding moments that have defined you?
2. How did you come to them? How did they define you? What was the result?
3. What decisions are you currently facing in your personal life?
4. What decisions are you currently facing your future life?
5. What decisions are you currently facing in your spiritual life?
6. Have you asked God for help? Why or why not?
7. What is one good decision you can make today that will define you tomorrow?

Cancer can bring clarity to moments.

And along the way I notices this poem that was quite moving, but un-related to your topic.
Sometimes Heroes Fall Down
