I have a very normal life: husband, kids, school, church, homework, sports, cooking, cleaning, laundry. Nothing out of the ordinary, nothing unique and yet sometimes I can barely keep up. It seems that I have been in somewhat of a survival mode this past month, trying to catch up on the house and the laundry, trying to adjust back to the routine of school and now homework, trying to deal with sibling rivalry and sassiness, and yet still trying to find the joy in the normalness of my everyday life. I don’t want to be so busy, so focused with the routine of life that I fail to see the joy in our ordinary everyday moments. Some days I need to turn a blind eye to my messy house, to the laundry that needs folded, to all that needs done and just enjoy my husband, my kids, my life, my normal. Today I am celebrating my everyday normal life with these deliciously ordinary chocolate chip cookies!
