The Treasure of a Normal Day


Like many, I complain about the heat and humidity. I complain about my job. I complain that the lawn has to be cut again, I am not working out enough, there is not enough time to do the things I enjoy, blah, blah, blah. Then I remember this famous quote by Mary Jean Iron and it makes me look again:

“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.”

It is Thursday, July 31, 2008: What are the treasures in your normal day?
