The Gift of an Ordinary Day

As a mom with young children, I really value the experience and insight that comes from parents who have adult children. Older people usually can't tell me enough to "enjoy your children while they're young! This time goes by so fast!"

This clip of author, Katrina Kenison reading from her book, The Gift on an Ordinary Day is very insightful and gives me a lot to think about as a young mom. It makes me not want to take one moment for granted!


  1. Boo hoo. I nearly cried. I probably would have if my downstairs weren't shaking with children flinging themselves around the living room with Mozart blasting in the background.

  2. Thanks for this very timely post. I dropped my 12 year old stranger off at school this morning and drove home wondering where I've gone wrong. After reading a few passages of scripture and saying a brief prayer, I logged on to your site searching for some inspiration, even if it was merely a picture of sweet innocent children and found this. It made me reflect on the good - just yesterday we had a great time watching a movie - and not today's frustration. Thank you, thank you!

  3. @ Tricia-- LOL! Yeah, that children "flinging" can be a bit!

  4. @Vernee-Wow. God is good AND right on time, ain't he? LOL!

    Thanks for leaving that comment. It is always a blessing to know that God can use this blog in a way that blesses those who read it!
