Normal Day, Let Me Be Aware Of The Treasure You Are
If nothing else, Hurricane Irma helps us to greatly appreciate uneventful times and the normalcy of our regular routines.
We take normal routines for granted; we don’t think about electricity, cable, phones, etc. until they are not functioning. Then, we get anxious and angry…someone let us down! Who? FPL, the cable company, the city, surely there is someone to blame for inconveniencing my routine. Unfortunately, Mother Nature doesn’t care about inconvenience to my little routine.
Hurricanes get our attention and force us to reexamine our place in the universe. I love the line, “Do you want to make God laugh? Tell him your plans.” We witness resilience from people whose house and cars are destroyed. Most say the same thing, “we still have our lives.”
Normal Day, Let Me Be Aware Of The Treasure You Are for someday I will want to hold you and you will be gone. As our routines return to normal, let’s treasure each routine and normal day.
Family Day was officially September 25 –– if you missed it, don’t worry. Just celebrate today or whatever day you can!
I want to share a really special video with you. It demonstrates how to meet stress straight on with humor. I hope this helps to reduce stress.
