Normal Day

This morning, I was pondering a question. Can my life really be so boring and ordinary that for almost two full months I have not been able to think of anything interesting enough to blog about? The conclusion I came to is that, yes, it is. However, it is a wonderful life, and I'm grateful for it and all the little moments that make it special, even if they're not worthy of a blog entry.

A poem was passed out in RS on Sunday that I really like. I thought one of my two followers might want to read it also, so here goes:

"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 quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return." --Mary Jean Iron

May you all have a perfectly wonderful normal day!

Uh, you actually have 6 followers...and I'm sure you laugh at something every day. I want to hear about it because I need more humor in my life!

Beck! I love your humor and that poem! It is so true. Since Evi's life-changing and to us, earth-shattering case ended, I have been feeling perfectly...normal! And I love it! Instead of long court trials, crying and begging in my prayers and major drama every day, I am just me. I take care of my kids. I clean my house. I am currently planting trees and planning Ashlyn's 7th birthday party for tomorrow...all normal, every day stuff. How I love life with normal stuff! Thanks for sharing that very true poem!
