5 Minute Friday: Ordinary

5-minute-friday-1Word prompt of the week:  ordinary

It’s Friday, the end of another week.  Thank God, life is calmer for the Burke family.  My husband has been transferred to our local hospital for rehabilitation.  After spending three weeks and one day in the cardiovascular ICU and then two days in surgery rehab, he’s in our home town.

It’s a bit ironic that the word prompt for this week is ordinary.  Nothing has been normal; our lives have been anything but ordinary since September 17, 2013.

Now, it’s time for my husband to begin to learn a new normal, to get back on his feet; for our family to get back to our lives.  He’s now in our local hospital, for maybe three or four weeks, where he’ll get stronger and become more stable on his feet and then be able to come home.

I’ve never thought of us as anything other than ordinary but these past few days have shown me that we are all very strong and determined.  Our strength has come from God, that’s my only explanation.  His extraordinary love has carried us through this journey.
