- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
I'm halfway through my 9-day trip through Ohio. Or perhaps I should say I am on a trek of steadfastly eating my way through the state. Between the weekend reunion with college roommates, the time spent with my Dad and siblings, and the remaining weekend - "Moms Weekend" at Ohio University with my soon-to-graduate daughter, I can feel my waistline disappearing. Of course it is all worth it and I'll be back on the fitness track when I return home.
When I read the above quote, I am reminded of the richness in my life. Perhaps the greatness blessings involve my family, and my friendships. I have indeed received a great deal. May I remain mindful and grateful for my "ordinary" life.
