Today's prompt is: ORDINARY
Once upon a time I used to hate ordinary. Now I'd love to have some ordinary in my life.
You might think that being a stay-at-home mom who home educates her children would be ordinary. Run-of-the-mill. Maybe even a little boring? Nope.
A typical day for me starts early, like 5:30 am, if I want to be sane the rest of the day. I need alone time, some basking-in-Him time, or I don't act nice and my day will be extraordinary. (Only not in a good way.)
Even though my life isn't so ordinary, I struggle with feeling ordinary. Even a little boring.
I have to constantly remind myself that I cannot compare my life or my body or my Jesus-walk to others.
Because what I am doing I am called to do, called by the King of Everything. And He has given me super power that enables me to do all the things I have to do.
Because being a mom is far from ordinary.
