Find Joy In The Ordinary

2018 find joy in the ordinary.jpg

My five year old: “Mom, what did we do this weekend?”

Me: “We had a relaxing weekend at home.”

My five year old: “I need to write about something we did this weekend at school today.”

Me: “Okay, let’s go through our weekend together and see what you can write about.”

Together we can up with all the things we did...

- family pizza and movie night
- mulching and planting
- riding his bike
- family basketball game
- coloring
- game time with Dad
- listening to music
- family meals
- telling jokes
- Etc.

We laughed and smiled together as we remembered the ordinary events that made up such a joyful weekend together.

I share this with you because so often nowadays the ordinary seems to be not enough.

I invite you to join me to...

Pause. Breathe. Pray. 

And may we remember that it is the joy we find in the ordinary that make up our extraordinary lives.

With love and hope,
