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
into the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the
sky and want, more than all the world, your return.
~ Mary Jean Iron
My kids are on their spring break from school
and I want to relish my time with them.....
Normal days that all too soon, will be gone.
I won't be posting while they are off, but I
may be writing and I may be able to sneak
in a visit to see those of you who write blogs.
But, I may not.
I want to be present for long walks
and long talks; snuggling in to watch movies or
play board games; for pushing up our sleeves
to create in the kitchen or kicking back
to read books.....for living on their time,
Normal things and normal days that all
too soon I know that I will be longing for.
So, look for me next week.
And until then, embrace your normal
days.....for they are far sweeter than
any of us can really know,
while we are living them.
