Living My Life

This morning we were treated to the grandeur and opulence of the Royal Wedding. The bride glowed with a stunning beauty and seemed so at ease. The Prince was flawless in his appearance and his demeanor. The wedding was a real live fairy tale.

The wedding got me to thinking about my ordinary life. As I watched the bride step into the Rolls Royce on her way to Westminster Abbey I couldn't help but feel a twinge of something...maybe call it a touch of...hmmmm, not jealousy but maybe something akin to jealousy. As I watched this beautiful woman, who is beginning a life of a princess, I couldn't help but think of my own, ordinary life. I thought of the wild contrasts between the life she is beginning and my life. But as I watched the contraints with which Kate had to conduct herself it made me realize I couldn't be more thankful for the life I am living ~ as ordinary as it is.

This morning not only saw me watching the royal wedding, it also saw me racing around getting myself and Lucas ready to go on a field trip. Will Kate ever get to accompany her kids on a field trip or fix them breakfast or wake them and feel the warmth of their sleepy yawns? Will she want to do all of those things? I don't know the answers to those questions but I do know how very blessed I feel to be able to do all of those little things, and more, for my own children.

I feel very content, happy and blessed to be living my life ~ as ordinary as it is.

  1. It only seems "ordinary" now and to us. Our lives are amazing. When you think about how the Lord is there for us .. and everyone we know that wants Him and oversees us and our families and our jobs and our paths....there is just nothing ordinary about any of it ...

    all I could say when I finished reading this was ... Me too me too.
