Phil Vassar’s wonderful song “Just Another Day in Paradise” captures the feeling most of us dads have but more than likely never express so eloquently. Its message is so pure and so simple, yet so profound. Even when things appear messy and chaotic and things don’t go the way we planned them (they rarely do), we still need to stop and appreciate all the blessings in our lives. Nobody ever said paradise was perfect. Life is still beautiful even when it feels disorganized and like a runaway train. It’s all part of the process… the highs come with the lows. Such is the yin and yang of marriage and family life. We can’t lose sight of the big picture when the pixels get all blurry for a second or two. Stay focused on all the joys that you are blessed with, not just this time of year but all year long. Sit back and enjoy the ride on the crazy train of life.
Next: Happy What?
