The Real Gift is Found in the Ordinary (Monday Moment ep. 395)

On this week’s Live Inspired Podcast Monday Moment segment, John O’Leary shares about meeting a young girl at burn camp.

The best and most meaningful aspects of our lives are discovered in the seemingly ordinary experiences, tender moments of grace, and ordinary human interactions with others throughout the day.

Today, I share the story of a young girl I met at a burn camp, and the reminder I shared that the beauty of scars, the resiliency they possess, and ultimately, that she is being prepared for something bigger and better than she can currently fathom.

As you prepare to sprint into your day, land the mighty projects, race the kids out the door, or successfully check off that long to-do list, don’t miss the fact that the real gift of this day isn’t found in getting through it.

The best of this day will be realized in slowing down long enough to savor the experiences, conversations, and moments that actually matter throughout it.
