Just Another Day?

Happy Friday!
I read this quote this morning over
at Privet and Holly and just have
to share it with you!

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
  into 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

Hope your "normal weekend"
is filled with wonderfulness
in the doing...whatever it may be!

Share your smile today!! :o)

Great quote!!! Such truth there!!

I have often found myself saying that the majority of the days of our lives are lived in the relative routineness of the every day. Most of life isn't lived on a vacation or at a party or doing anything grandiose. Most of our days are filled with we had better learn to find joy and pleasure in the ordinary.

I've been saying that for years...but that quote says it far more eloquently than I do.

Have a great day.

What a wonderful quote and oh soo true...That is kind of what I mean when I say, "I am just an ordinary woman, living a very ordinary life" (most of the time haha) And yet, the God we serve makes the ordinary soo very special doesn't He??? Have a wonderful week-end over there too sweet Becky. HUGS
