the gift of an ordinary day

"No picture, or home video, or diary entry can begin to capture the nubbly texture, subtle tones, and secret shades of a family's life as it is from one hour, or day, or season, to the next. It has taken a while, but I know it now~the most wonderful gift we had, the gift I've finally learned to cherish above all else, was the gift of all those perfectly ordinary days." ~Katrina Kenison

I received this book for my birthday from Dan and the boys. I just finished it today. It was wonderful. I feel like I got a sneak peek into my future from another mom's experience, and the message that she shared is what I have always held close to my heart. Maybe that's why I liked it so much.
