I love ordinary days. They are my favorite. I love the simple things that make up an ordinary day:
Waking up next to my husband...even when I detest waking up...is the best start to any day.
A hot shower and some electricity to run my blow dryer.
A car to drive to work...even when it's a car I despise.
A commute buddy...even when we don't talk.
A job to go to...when so many others aren't lucky enough to have one.
A text from my youngest child....lets me know she's still alive and she still needs me...for something.
A bill to pay...and money to pay it...means I have the means.
A great book to read while I eat lunch.
A TV....even a 500lb non HD compatible TV...for watching my favorite shows.
A hook and some yarn to create something beautiful...or useful...or both.
A daughter who loves to cook dinner.
A few chores to make myself feel useful.
Going to sleep next to my husband...the best way to end a day.
I love an ordinary day...it fuels my soul.
Quote for the Day:
"We can learn to rejoice in even the smallest blessings our life holds. It is easy to miss our own good fortune; often happiness comes in ways we don't even notice...The ordinariness of our good fortune can make it hard to catch." ~Pema Chodron~
