Be Thankful for Boring...

I have a co-worker that I consider a friend. His family is going through some of the worst kind of hurt imaginable right now. I was talking to him this afternoon at work and he said something that struck a chord with me. He was telling me how just a few weeks ago he was commenting to his wife how they do the same thing every day. Get up, go to work, come home, eat dinner, play with the kids, go to bed, and do it all over again the next day. Their life was boring.

This last couple of weeks have been a living nightmare for them. He would give anything to go back to boring. So, when you find yourself restless because your in a rut, take a good look around and remember that there might be a time when you will wish more than anything that you could go back to that point. When things weren't quite as "exciting" (whether good or bad).

Keep it in the back of your head, and say a prayer for my friend. They really need the prayers right now...

It's funny that you mention this. I would give my left arm to be able to go back to boring. Normal is something that people should appreciate.
