Ode to the Mundane
Today I feel grateful...not for anything huge or earth shattering but for little things, things I take for granted. I'm thankful for the love of children who accept us without judgement and hold out unbiased hands; for friends that care enough to tell us the truth even when it hurts; for the unconditional love of family; for the fact that puberty comes only once. I'm grateful that I no longer feel compelled to have to figure out who I am...but instead can just BE who I am. I give praise for days without pain, for restful sleep, for unexpected kindnesses, for old radio shows, for C.S. Lewis. I feel gratitude for laughter that comes quickly and unbidden; for joy that colors every circumstance; for the fact that, although adversity affects all of us, it need not define us; for chocolate. Today I rejoice in the warm sun and cool water, in the Love that gave first, in the Mercy that surrounds me, and in the Peace that sustains me. Maybe, just maybe, the mundane isn't so commonplace after all.
