I spent some time cleaning up a portion of the back garden yesterday. I could feel a gentle breeze on my face as I watched my grandson ride his bike, the dog enjoying a nap on a cushioned chair and my husband lazily swinging his golf club on the lawn.
Nothing unusual in any of it but the feeling of savoring the moment permeated the late afternoon air.
Sometimes the very ordinariness of my life seems the most worthy of celebration. Life has a way of teaching you how fleeting those moments can be.
I am being more careful to acknowledge the times of gentle peace in my every day life and making sure to pause and count my blessings.
What ordinary blessings are you counting today?
