Five Minute Friday – Ordinary

People all over the world blogging on the same topic on the same day for just five minutes and linking up at Lisa Jo’s place. Today’s topic: Ordinary.

Five Minute Friday


We have big events coming up. Unusual events. Fundraising concerts, piles of paperwork, trips to Ethiopia. Bringing a little one home. They are life changing events that will stand out in our memories forever. Shared moments that will mark our life and bond us in new and wonderful ways.

And I am excited for all of them. Well, maybe not the shots and the 30 hour travel.

But what I am most excited for are the ordinary things. The ordinary days. Looking in the backseat mirror while driving and see my TWO girls sitting together. Making pancakes on a Saturday morning and filling THREE plates instead of two. Tucking two little ones into bed at night and kissing two little heads before I turn in. Taking a walk and watching my girls holding hands and laughing together. Even the moments I won’t enjoy, like teaching them to share.

I am looking forward to the ordinary days of an ordinary family, brought together by God’s great love and mercy.

  1. Beautiful! Visiting from Five Minute Fridays. I didn’t get a chance to post this week but I know what you mean about treasuring the ordinary family time together. I remember when my son was first home as a newborn, sleeping on my chest, on the couch with my husband watching a movie. Tears filled my eyes at that beautiful ordinary moment. Blessings to you as you wait to bring your little one home!
