Robert Benson, in his book, Between The Dreaming And The Coming True, speaks of the really simple things of life: "The coffeemaker switched on in the kitchen, and I heard the water bubbling its way up and into the basket and down into the pot. My bare feel brushed across the hardwood floor, and the doorknob clicked as I opened it. The sound of cars going by in the semidarkeness, carrying those whose livelihoods depend on their arriving at some appointed place hardly before the day begins. The chatter of birds at the feeders that surround our house, chatter that removes any doubt that God has let there be light and this day is now to be enered into in full measure." He writes that he calls these early morning sounds a symphony. Inspiration, optimism, anticipation, what a way to start the day!
Our attitude on ordinary days, if there are such things, makes a difference in the lives of those around us. I didn't always have that knowledge, in fact learned it a little late in life. It's a fact, the way we live our life greatly affects others.
Here I tell some of my experiences on 'ordinary days' and what I have learned about life, marriage, what I learned about raising children while doing it and after the fact and how I've learned to accept myself as unique, as we all are. But most of all I've found the secret to life. Follow along. Maybe you will too.
