Make the Ordinary Life Come Alive

Make the Ordinary Life Come Alive

Do not ask your children
To strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
But it is a way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
And the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show  them the joy of tasting
Tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
When  pets and people die.
Show  them the infinate pleasure
In  the touch of a hand
And  make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.
