The last week has been rather trying for me. Well, since last Monday, things have been trying for me.
Traveling across country and switching planes three times – two of which were smaller seating arrangements with grouchier people than I would like and finding out in Houston there had been an emergency evacuation due to a gas explosion in my Bakersfield neighborhood made for an emotionally treacherous end of the trip.
Once in Bakersfield, I was immediately thrust into my normal routines. And my normal routines plus secondary and tertiary activities along with spinning plates of other’s needs and desires almost all day long everyday.
I found a poem I love by Mary Jean Irion and have decided to play with an image and a line, daily, to remind me what is important… certainly much more important than getting worked up over continual plate spinning.
I hope you will read along to experience the entire poem and perhaps pray or set an intention to live the poem as it is posted.
How about it? Do you want to remember: “Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.”
What else or what other ways would you complete this sentence or add to this sentence?
