Inspiration in the Ordinary

Some days I'm not sure what to write. I sit here with my laptop on my lap and I don't feel inspired.

Just a normal sunset, nothing spectacular.
An average day, an average life.

That is what makes it so extraordinary.

With so much sickness, poverty, loss, and destruction, how can I not be thankful for an ordinary day.

A day with such little inspiration that I should be thankful for the lack of excitement and drama.

Today was full of love, hard work, new opportunities, and bad weather.  

Life may seem boring after hiking mountains, kayaking rivers, off-roading in gorgeous forests and deserts.  I have lived a life that many dream of.  Yet, there is something to be said about an average day - a day of hanging out at home or just running to town.  

Thankfulness for the average moment, average day, average life.
