normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.
let me not pass you by in the quest of some
rare and perfect tomorrow.
-mary jean irion
getting back into the routine of ordinary days after the holidays is no fun…quite frankly, it’s the pits…and yet the ordinary, “real world” days we so often complain about make up a large majority of our lives. if we take them for granted do we not then take for granted this life we’ve been given?
as i sit here tucked in bed on this tuesday night, i’m pondering this very question. i’ve always been one to live my life in anticipation of the future…future events, future goals, future accomplishments…and while this is not necessarily a terrible characteristic to have, i’m learning that i am missing out on a lot because of it.
those little moments right in front of me that so often go unnoticed because i’m too busy looking off into the distance. those same little moments make up a big chunk of my life & it would be such a shame to continue missing them.
so for today, i will practice loving the ordinary. join me?
