Today is just an ordinary day. Much like the one that came before it and probably much like the one that will come after it. Sometimes it is good to break free from the mundane of an ordinary day, the grocery shopping, the laundry and the floor sweeping, to find the beauty that is right in front of you.
Sometimes we need to unpack the fresh basil and inhale deeply even though we are fretting that we forgot the anchovies.
Look around. That Ukelele that didn't get put away is actually a sweet reminder of a husband who is trying to learn a love song for his wife. It's all perspective.
Treat this day as the special day it really is. Bake some muffins. A batch of blueberry, a batch of chocolate chip.
Embrace the ordinariness of having show and tell of all the new books you got for Christmas with a friend, while curled up on your sofa and catching up on all you've missed.
Look around you at all the beauty and love that fills your home. The cat that wants his belly rubbed. The daughter that wants you to sit on her bed and keep her company. This is your life. The beauty is in the every day, extraordinary moments.
P.S. Thank you all for your kindness on my last post. My dad is doing much better!!
