We all want to do great things.
To have some great accomplishment, some “I did it”
worthy of being engraved on our tombstone.
But maybe somewhere along the line, the price tags got switched,
and what is now considered “great” is really not so great,
and what is considered mundane is really pretty awesome.
complain blog about my “To Do List.”
About how long it is, and how in the world
I got myself into all the things I get myself into,
and how to get it all done on time and
before somebody calls to see if it’s done yet.
But then… maybe I didn’t get myself into those things,
but instead was placed there for a reason
by Someone who had something to teach me.
It may have been to teach me that the last “To Do List,”
the one before that was filled with really mundane things
like snotty noses and dust bunnies and piles of dirty dishes
were actually the real Great Things.
I guess whatever our hand is finding to do,
is exactly what we should be doing at this very moment.
And it is a Gift.
The Gift of “Now.”
