Today has been quite a long day and the moments have blurred together. It’s cloudy yet still beautiful this evening. When I close my eyes tonight another Monday will have broken broken. I have my window open as I write this. The birds are whistling rhapsodic tonight…perhaps their blissfulness is the result of the fast-approaching spring.
I sometimes pause and wonder how the days pass so quickly. How the days between last Monday and this Monday vanish so unbelievably fast. I wonder how many everyday gifts I miss and fail to appreciate due to time passing so fast. Even the gifts that recur daily feel like new gifts every single day. I wonder why we so often look for the biggest gifts and adrenaline-filled moments rather than enjoying and savoring life’s every day moments…the moments that truly last.
Maybe it is the ordinary days, mundane yet dependable, that are the days we should truly cherish. Days draped with the familiar blessings that shield us from vulnerability. I think that these are my favorite days. Simple, quiet, ordinary days.Today is one of those days…”extraordinarily ordinary” :)
