Five Minute Friday: Ordinary

Five Minute Friday
Today, I'm joining up with Lisa Jo Baker's "Five Minute Friday" movement. Every Friday, people join together to write for five minutes about the same topic. Here's my thought on this week's topic.


A year ago I was wishing to be ordinary. Our lives had been turned upside down by my husband's health issues and my pregnancy. At this point last year we were waiting for the birth of our daughter, followed by her uncertain passing and certain physical and mental challenges.

Now, I can say I got my wish. Day to day I can say that I do "more of the same" and only have to worry about work, dinner, house cleaning. My family has had time to stabilize. We've had time to regroup and enjoy the day to day living we missed last year between countless doctor appointments.

Thanks be to God. Thanks for the ordinary, normal days.

  1. Ah, I dream of "ordinary" myself these days, after a very scary health ordeal with my own beloved husband. Thanks be to God, we are covered by His grace!
