everyday adventures are found in the little moments

My mom recently visited me for an extended period of time. While we had a few fun outings planned, most of our days were spent in mundane tasks: cleaning, grocery shopping, etc. One afternoon near the end of her visit, we were looking back on what we had done. I commented how we didn’t do much, just lots of little things. Mom’s response really stuck with me: life is lived in those little things.

The little things. Those small moments. It’s the little everyday adventures that seem unimportant at the time that fill our days. Life is lived in those little things.

We tend to remember the big events. Family vacations, Christmases, weddings and funerals. Those get the big press, family photos captured and moments preserved. But we often overlook the little moments that make up our days.

As we count our everyday adventures this month, we can keep in mind Psalms 90:12 where it says, “so teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.”

Pay attention as your day goes on. What kind of everyday adventures can you have this month?


The hunt for everyday adventures

Are you ready to go exploring with me? The beauty of an adventure is that you don’t always know what’s around the next bend or behind the next tree. We’ll poke around for the month of October and see what we find. Join me for 31 days of everyday adventures, part of Write 31 Days.
