“Ordinary Moments”

Life Love

     Right now I am just so thankful for all the little things that happen in my everyday life. It’s the little moments that can be so easily taken for granted that make me the happiest.

“In life,

there are no Ordinary Moments.

Most of us never realize

the most significant

moments of our lives

when they’re happening”

-Kathleen Magee

This quote says it all. There really are no ordinary moments. Each moment, every interaction, everything that we do will leave an impact. As for myself I try hard to see the significance of my ordinary moments.

Here are some “ordinary moments” that I have loved the past couple of day. I can already see how each of these moments have left a imprint on my life…

     Jake and I love to leave notes to each other on the huge white board that we have. Since we don’t see each other super often because of his busy schedule, it is a great way for us to show the other that we are thinking of them. After having a couple of crazy days and hardly any sleep, I was in need of a pick me up. I think Jake saw that because he wrote me the sweetest note.

“Dear Emily,

            I hope you have an amazingacal day with Emma. I can’t wait to see you sometime…sigh But, no matter how busy we are, we get forever together. I’m so thankful for that. I love you with all that I am, and that will always make life worth going through.



     This simple and cute message made my day. He even used the word amazingacal! If you know Jake, you know that he probably never said that word in his life until he married me. I must be rubbing off on him! I just love him so much and it’s moments like this that make me realize just how lucky I am to be married to him.


     Emma creates so many “ordinary moments” in my life. As I like to say, I love her little loves. It just melts my heart when she reaches up and grabs my finger. Or when she crawls up me just to give me a hug and a kiss. Hearing her say the word Mama makes me just beam inside. And I can’t help but laugh with happiness when she dances and tries to sing when I play the piano. It is seriously the funniest and cutest thing ever! I know that I say this a lot. But spending everyday with this little munchkin is the best thing ever. She is so special and I am going to try to treasure up all my “ordinary moments” with her. I know that time is going to go my too fast. But can I just say that I can’t get enough of her little cheeks. They are just so kissable!


     One of my favorite “ordinary moments” just happened a little bit ago. I had just put Emma down for the night and was pigging out on some brownie batter dip and pretzels. All of a sudden I heard a a knock on my door. When I opened the door, to my surprise, I saw a little boy that I teach at church and his family. She shyly handed me a bouquet of flowers and thanked me for being for the best primary teacher. His parents told me that he decided and came up with the idea to give flowers to his two teachers. It was the sweetest thing ever. This particular little boy is three years old and is so much fun to have in my little sunbeam class. He is so stinking smart and is always saying things to make me laugh. I love coming home and telling Jake the newest hilarious thing that he said in class. To open my door to this little guy made my night.


     There are so many more “ordinary moments” that happen all the time. They can seem so insignificant at first, but it is these moments that I always look back on and talk about.

Here are a few more “ordinary moments that I have had recently”

playing the piano again
Making a little burlap banner (It just makes our place look so cute)
Hugs that say everything
Visiting family (So glad we live close to Jake’s side of the family)
dancing with Jake in the hallway
spring weather
A stranger saying hello
playing chase with Emma
Knowing that I have a forever with my little family


I could go on. Each day just has so much good in it. Sometimes we just have to look for it. I just love all the “ordinary moments” that occur everyday.
