Normal day...

Things have been a bit crazy around here.
Between family illnesses of the leukemia, depression and final days of old age type we've been busy fretting and doing what we can to help these three lovely people. Mix in continued 'debates' about wedding plans and work demands and I'm crying out for a normal day.
I came across this quote (by Mary Jean Iron) a few months back and over the last few days I've been reciting the bits I can remember off the top of my head every time I feel the pressure and try to remember it's not always like it is now.

"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are… Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect Tomorrow. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in my pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return."- Mary Jean Iron

I definitely treasure my normal, boring, simple days.
