Celebrating the Ordinary

The other week I made macaroni and cheese for lunch. It was not out of a box but homemade. I will say that as I was making it I was thinking and even beginning to search for a new recipe. I wasn't sure that my macaroni and cheese was that good. Oh well, it was lunch and we needed to eat lunch.

Miss K asked what was for lunch and when I told her macaroni and cheese, she burst out singing,

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow:
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

It was just macaroni and cheese but her to that day it was worth celebrating. My thought it was just macaroni and cheese.  I wonder if too many times I don't enjoy and celebrate something because I think it is ordinary, not worth the celebration. 

What ordinary things can you celebrate today? 


P.S. I am still looking for a good macaroni and cheese recipe. I will also confess that my kids ate macaroni and cheese tonight from a box. Bob offered to cook, I wasn't feeling good, and daddy is out of town so macaroni and cheese from a box was the menu.
