Normal Days

“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 the quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.” Mary Jean Iron

Walking in the rain, among the fallen leaves, along the rocky beach, I slipped. I almost fell. I jerked my neck and my ankle twisted slightly but I managed to regain balance. I waited for my heart to stop racing and stopped to look around and sighed.

The rocks were slippery and I hadn’t been paying attention. I was surrounded by water, trees, amazing colors, and the sound of waves swooshing as they broke. I had been unaware of anything but the worries scurrying around in my head. I was taking my day for granted. Life has a way of waking us up.

I’m not sure what the world normal really means. However, if the day goes by with no dangerous illness or tragedy reported, we should acknowledge that it was a good one. Usually we don’t appreciate our normal until it leaves us.

I hope you have a wonderfully normal day.
