Wondering Wednesday: A Study in the Ordinary

This week, along with thousands of women, I am participating in a project called, A Week in the Life, where I document all the little everyday moments of my life. I have taken at least 100 pictures in the past few days. The pictures I take showcase the ordinary and mundane things that comprise my life.

I clean a lot, which is no surprise because I have six children. My house gets really messy.

Working on this project, I have caught some really tender moments.

My ordinary moments have changed over the years, as our family has grown, children go to school, we move to a different country, and people change. I'm a different person than I was 16 years ago when I was a very young mother to one small baby boy. I'll be a different person and our family circumstances will change in a few years as my oldest children start to leave home for missions, college, and their own families. In three years, all my children will be in school and I will no longer have a toddler following my every step.

I think that learning to appreciate the ordinary moments of life makes for a richer, fuller life. We start to see progress and growth as we look at how these ordinary moments fit into the big picture.

My one a day projects have really made me more appreciative of the small moments in my life as well.
