coffee on the front porch and my daily thought

"Even the most ordinary days should be treasured like precious jewels".
That reminds me of something I read somewhere, sometime in the past that suggested you could be in a zen moment doing the dishes or any other mundane activity and feel happy and fulfilled.
Many times I have thought my days or my life were very ordinary and then I talk with a friend. Now sometimes these are friends that I think have all kinds of happenings in their life and they are very busy with this and that. What is really funny, is to find out that the people who you think are having an interesting life, think YOU are having an interesting life. It just amuses me to no end.
What this is really saying though, is each day is precious no matter who you are or what you are doing, and since you have this day, :) :be happy :) is short. Don't take your day for granted, don't think it is ordinary, and don't let it slip away without being in touch with your loved ones.
This is the other end of the porch.

This is where I can sit and enjoy the view on the front porch.
There is a street out front and there is some activity, but not enough to do real people watching. There is a lot to be said for quiet times and serenity. Come join me for coffee sometime!
