I’m currently reading a book for a Mama Book Group, and came upon a passage that REALLY shook me, and at the same time, made me proud of what I do. I’d love to share it with you.
“I think I learned the most about the value of ordinary from interviewing men and women who have experienced tremendous loss such as the loss of a child, violence, genocide, and trauma. The memories that they held most sacred were the ordinary, everyday moments. It was clear that their most precious memories were forged from a collection of ordinary moments, and their hope for others is that they would stop long enough to be grateful for those moments and the joy they bring.”

Title- The Gifts of Imperfection
It isn’t easy to slow down in this world, especially when you’re trying to get the kids up and out the door. However, when I do take my time dressing my 2-year-old and when I do actually listen to what my incessant-talking 4-year-old has to say, you know what I feel? I feel gratitude! And that my friends, is what life is about.
Here’s a picture share of an ordinary day that I’m so grateful for! What are you grateful for today? Please share!
