Five Minute Friday: Ordinary

It is Friday which means it is time to link up with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday again. This means: write for five minutes flat, no editing, just let it pour out of your fingers. This week's caption is



Ordinary is not what we are nor is it what our life is like. Everything here is far from ordinary.

Sometimes I wish for ordinary. An ordinary temper tantrum. Ordinary dinners together. Ordinary family outings. Ordinary playdates. Ordinary food. Ordinary speech.

But a lot of things in our lives are extraordinary. And some of them are really good.

Like extraordinary joy in living this life. Like extraordinary friends who just get it. Like extraordinary people we meet and whom we would have never met had our life been ordinary. Like extraordinary love that I feel for my son. Like extraordinary encounters I have with strangers and an extraordinarily happy child.

Sometimes not ordinary sucks. But sometimes it is really okay not to live an ordinary life. All you have to do is try to see past the ordinary you wish for.

  1. We all wish for ordinary or to be "normal" on some level, but how much more lovely to just be present and thankful. That makes your ordinary extraordinary. You are a beautiful mother!
