Dedicated to You, Homeschool Mama: Today is an Ordinary Miracle

Do this homeschool thing long enough and you’ll begin to take it for granted. You’ll take for granted the ordinary miracle of your homeschool days, the freedoms, the children, the lifestyle.

Recognize that there’s no homeschool utopia, there are a whole bunch of ordinary miracles in our homeschool lives.

There’s nothing like an ordinary day to remind us of the miracle in the common every day…

“It’s not that unusual, when everything is beautiful

It’s just an ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when it’s time to snow

Don’t need to teach a seed to grow

It’s just an ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift they say

Wrapped up for you every day, open up and find a way

To give some of your own

Isn’t it remarkable like every time a raindrop falls

It’s just an ordinary miracle today

The birds in winter have their fling

And always make it home by spring

It’s just another ordinary miracle today

When you wake up every day, please don’t throw your dreams away,

Hold them close to your heart, ’cause we’re all apart

of the ordinary miracles

It seems so exceptional that things just work out after all

It’s just an ordinary miracle today.

Sun comes up and shines so bright

Disappears again at night, it’s just an ordinary miracle today.”

Danny Elfman
