Yesterday was horrible. I spent the day feeling overwhelmed by the mundane. I was bored, worn down. I wished for something exciting to perk me up, to bring me joy. But I spent the day cleaning, carrying around a whiney baby, taking temperatures, and singing along to High School Musical. I was sad. And then this morning, I was doing my normal blog perusing, and this quote showed up in a post on Enjoying the Small Things:

"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.
