Lucky to see that

Early in the morning the other day,on the drive into town we saw a mother quail and about 8 chicks running across the road. I yelled out, "Look at the baby birds," to show the kids.

My daughter said, "Daddy, are we lucky to be able to see that?"

Yes we are.

The sublime comes unexpectedly, and if you are not paying attention, you can miss it.

Children are simultaneously the best at pointing out those moments, and the worst distraction from them :D

You're so right . . . my deepest wish is to be able to appreciate these moments fully as they happen, and my biggest fear is that I'll miss them. In fact, that's a big reason I blog. Though I agree with erdmond!
