Extraordinary in the Ordinary

"Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is a way of foolishness. Help then instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears. Show them how to cry when pets and people die. Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand. And make the ordinary come alive for them. The extraordinary will take care of itself."  Asking, demanding, pressuring, expecting the extraordinary is meaningless if a person cannot experience and value the beauty and simplicity of life and relationships. The infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand speaks of an individual's highest worth in a relationship. To develop a heart soft enough to weep at the loss of a pet or loved one speaks of the depth of the gratitude for that relationship. Without the ability of wonderment in everyday life and of seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary, individual achievement could prove futile and unfulfilling. The love and pleasure found in interacting wholeheartedly with food, fun and friendships are the gemstones. Placing God in the center makes this life complete and truly worth living. Those are extraordinary moments. Follow us on Twitter: @daintyangell
