Uneventful Days

Uneventful days.  They aren’t our favorites.  Put a long string of uneventful days together, and we start longing for something big to happen… a huge shift in the weather, a grand celebration, the closing of one chapter and the beginning of a new one.  We need excitement.

On the other hand, too many days crowded with non-stop activity, fun or frantic, and we’re ready to go right back to the mundane for awhile.

I’m a fan of uneventful days.  And this isn’t the first time I’ve encouraged others to cherish them as well.

A terrorist attack at a marathon.  A tragic boating accident among young friends.  A flu diagnosis turned fatal.  A late night explosion.  These are the moments that always find me offering up a prayer of thanksgiving for common, nothing out of the ordinary, calm days.

Sometimes I have wishes you for you, my readers.  I suppose today my wish is that you’ll just go along in a normal day doing regular things with the same old people.  I hope you’ll be safe and sound, ready to rest your head on a comfortable pillow tonight, with nothing new to worry about.  Yes, I wish you an uneventful day.

    Yes! Stay home when you can! Remember that book you intended to read one day? Those weeds you planned on pulling? Think on these things! ha

    Thanks, Sandy. I’m old enough to appreciate those uneventful days… Uneventful everyday life is exciting enough for me! I can’t watch a movie without getting adrenaline overload… but I know I’m a bit of a wimp on that front. Going to bed feeling safe and sound is a wonderful feeling. Add feeling loved to that, and it just doesn’t get any better, does it?
