For the months of November and December, Kevin is suddenly working Monday through Friday. Finally a chance to feel normal! I mean, we have had the weirdest schedules on the planet and often feel like we're swimming against the current as far as scheduling things with people and the like. We have definitely dealt with that and tried to make the most of whatever schedule God has provided for us.
But sometimes I find myself wondering, "What would it be like to be normal?" Not necessarily pining away for it, but just wondering.
So, we've been "normal" for almost two weeks now.
Except, I still don't feel normal.
I still don't feel normal!!!
I still feel like there's a "right" way of doing everything that needs to be done (which every "normal" person knows and does) that I will never comprehend or achieve. I can't put my finger on it. Even abnormal people seem more normal to me than I feel to myself at times.
I'm not talking about imperfections or faults I need to work on in my life. That's another story altogether. Even the most normal people have those. Nor am I referring to the fact that I love the Lord and His Word, which is weird to some people. Nope, I'm just talking about the day-to-day living of life in general.
I'm going out on a limb here. The thought occurred to me that maybe "normal" is elusive to everybody, or most people anyway. Do a lot of people feel like someone else's life is more "normal?" What is normal?
I would love to know whether or not you think you are normal, or if you ever feel the way I do . . . like you sometimes want to live a normal life (when we have time to even think about it!) but aren't even sure what normal is?
Does anyone even know what I'm talking about here?
