When everything is beautiful

You would not believe how absolutely lazy I’ve been this past week on my vacation at home on Martha’s Vineyard.  H-E-A-V-E-N.

One day I didn’t even get out of my pajamas for the entire day!  Double H-E-A-V-E-N.

(Still, I worried someone like a neighbor or the UPS delivery guy would appear at the door and catch me being lazy;-) Amazing how programmed I am to feel guilty about totally vegging out. Note to self: gotta work on that!)

Anyway, it felt like a miracle to have a whole week to do whatever I wanted whenever I wanted.

Every day (except for the jammie day) I hopped in and out of my car multiple times doing all kinds of fun and relaxing things on this island.

On constant repeat in my car, I listened to a song that lifts me up and inspires me to be better at living my life.  I hope it will inspire you, too, and I wanted to share this little slice of my Staycation with you.

Ordinary Miracle

by Sarah McLachlan

It’s not that unusual when everything is beautiful
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when it’s time to snow
You don’t need to teach a seed to grow
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift they say
Wrapped up for you everyday
Open up and find a way
To give some of your own

Isn’t it remarkable?
Like every time a raindrop falls
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Birds in winter have their fling
And always make it home by spring
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
‘Cause we are all a part
Of the ordinary miracle

Ordinary miracle
Do you want to see a miracle?

It seems so exceptional
Things just work out after all
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sun comes up and shines so bright
It disappears again at night
It’s just another ordinary miracle today


I wish you a week with many ordinary and extraordinary miracles.  Please share what has been remarkable in your life this summer in the comments section below.
