There’s a line from the movie “You’ve got Mail” where the character Kathleen Kelly ponders “Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life – well, valuable, but small – and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave?”
Well, I’m pretty positive that I lead my small life because I DO like it. And I have been brave too while living my small life – remaining calm when my children were hospitalized, letting my kids take their bikes around the block alone for the first time or live away at college, sitting by my parents’ sides as they lay dying, buying our first home,…… heck – I’m pretty sure opening my own business was brave. To me, all those things in my small life were a Big Brave Deal. And when the stress of being brave all week long gets too much, I stay home and cook. I pick flowers from the garden for the table, I turn off all electronics and just listen to the quiet as I cook. And I’m so very thankful for my children, my husband, this house and ….. the mundane: “relating to or typical of this world”.
Life would be nothing without it! ♥
