I thought a lot about my day yesterday, my perfectly normal day. I sat on the floor and watched my child sleeping, and said a word of thanks for the miracle of "nothing special." A day where we all come home at the end. Take a walk, eat dinner, play a bit, then settle into bed.
I thought about the parents who lost their children in the shootings at Virginia Tech. I thought how much they longed for just another normal day, because nothing, nothing, will be normal again for them, ever. My heart hurt for them. And it hurt from straining at its very seams with gratitude for having had just another normal day.
We take each day for granted. How was your day? Oh, the usual, you know, same old, same old. I challenge each of us, out of respect, to realize just how good every day is. Call it a meme, call it what you will. But make a post, leave me a link in your comment and let me know, "How Was Your Day?" I'd like to hear about it.
