The ordinary acts we practice every day at home
are of more importance
to the soul than their simplicity might suggest.
Irish poet (1779 - 1852)
It is easy to forget that the regular days spent at home - just me and my three - are what I am going to look back on, in the not to distant future, and wish I could have back. It is cleaning up around the house with the busy rumblings of Star Wars battles and spy games that are memory worthy. It is stepping on those tiny sharp legos, wincing in pain, but carrying on with an overloaded basket of tiny pink clothing items. It is stopping what I am doing to sit down for a game of Candyland or Wii bowling. It is chopping up an apple and slathering it with peanut butter only 20 minutes after serving lunch. It is the ordinary moments.
Whether your rainy Tuesday afternoon is plain and ordinary or filled with colorful energy - Enjoy it. YOU GET TO. It is your Tuesday to get to live!
