On my phone I keep a list of things to blog about. One of the topics I have is “We are meant to be ordinary”. I have no memory of writing it, or what thought inspired the idea. It’s nice though. There are many great things in the world. Great inventions, great music, great people. But most of us won’t make anything world changing or be anyone history making. Most of us are destined for ordinariness. This could be a bad thing, except that many things in life are ordinary and wonderful. Families, friends, potatoes and hoodies. Grass, sunshine, sleep and water. These are all ordinary. So being ordinary can’t be too bad if that’s the company we keep.
Maybe that’s what I was thinking about.
Mother Teresa just scrubbed toilets and tried to be faithful, I’d say she was a old changer and ordinary.
