Quote of the Week

It’s decided. I HAVE to get back on track.

Life has just been spinning this year between dealing with unpleasant issues with Rob’s ex, and then Rob’s recent heart attack and recovery, we have barely had time to just enjoy the little joys in our everyday life.

So. I just have to jump back in as I know I will regret having this big gap of time in our lives that I’m not recording.

No better way to start with a quote. Quote of the week. Or weekend as it is now.

Someone on Facebook had posted a picture of this little verse that struck me and seemed perfect for the celebration of all things ordinary that I am feeling now given the past month.

Make the Ordinary Come Alive

 Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives.

Such striving may seem admirable, but it is a way of foolishness.

Help them instead to find the wonder and marvel of an ordinary life. 

Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears.

Show them how to cry when pets die and people die.

Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand.

And make the ordinary come alive for them.

The extraordinary will take care of itself.

  1. I’m glad you are back in action, Leah. We have missed you, although completely understand your absence. I hope you coming back means that Rob’s recovery is going well! You two have been in my thoughts and prayers. As always, love the quote. It’s true we think so much about having an extraordinary life that we forget to appreciate how wonderful and amazing ordinary is.
