Ordinary days. We pass through them before we realize there are way more piled up behind us than there are ahead. As I was puttering around the house doing, well, something ordinary, I thought of the title of a book by Ann Howard Creel, called, “The Magic of Ordinary Days.” Is there magic in those pages we flip through quickly to get to the next chapter in our lives? It is easy to take routine days for granted. We don’t stop and realize there is magic in them until some event alters their steady rhythm.
It can come like a lightning bolt out of the blue-that unexpected event that can alter your reality. A health issue, a divorce, a catastrophic event, are a few that can create havoc in the comfortable routine of our days. Most of the time it takes us by surprise, or we choose to ignore the signs it is brewing.
