Here’s a prayer to begin, or even close your day, by Donna Schaper:
Let us find the sacred deep within the ordinary, in the sweetness in our coffee and the bread on our table. Let us never miss a chance to praise what is good—and let the rest go by. Amen.
I love this message and continue to be certain that an awareness of our ordinary blessings is directly related to our sense of peace and joy and in turn our ability to serve others well.
My children bless me daily in a number of ways. They remind me that an ordinary life is a true blessing. Lucy loves an ordinary day and eeks out as much joy from each one as she possibly can. Like a picnic when it's 25 degrees outside. Praise what is good.
