    Description

    The Gift of an Ordinary Day is an intimate memoir of a family in transition, with boys becoming teenagers, careers ending and new ones opening up, and an attempt to find a deeper sense of plac - and a slower pace - in a small New England town.

    This is a story of mid-life longings and discoveries, of lessons learned in the search for home and a new sense of purpose, and the bittersweet intensity of life with teenagers - holding on, letting go.

    Poised on the threshold between family life as she's always known it and her older son's departure for college, Kenison is surprised to find that the times she treasures most are the ordinary, unremarkable moments of everyday life, the very moments that she once took for granted, or rushed right through without noticing at all.

    The relationships, hopes, and dreams that Kenison illuminates will touch women's hearts, and her words will inspire mothers everywhere as they try to make peace with the inevitable changes in store.

    read my mind

    hearing her thoughts on raising teenagers and letting go; finding new meaning in our lives...it was like she was reading my mind and expressing all those feelings in my heart that i didn't yet have words to express.

    Beautiful reflections and lessons

    I really enjoyed this book. I feel like a dear friend, watching on the side as this family grows, moves, changes and matures.
    I heartily recommend the audible version.

    Love this book!

    I am so glad that I picked this book when I was facing challenges with my teenage child. I cried as I listen to chapter 9 because it was as Mrs. Kenison was narrating my current story. It was so refreshing to hear that I was not the only person who was facing the struggles of parenting but most of all the struggles of those teenage years.

    I love that the author narrated the book, because I can listen to her for hours. Her voice, tone, pitch are just on point.

    Thank you so much to Ms. Kenison for writing this book!

    Such a peaceful soulful book

    The authors warm steady voice as she reads the beautiful story of her family was like a balm. The story is not at all preachy as she fully shares the good days and the bad, her parenting failures and triumphs. I wanted it to go in and on.

    Impressive insights

    Beautifully written insights into motherhood. I will breathe in the ordinary days with ease after taking in this book. It is written by a mother who is telling us all to pay attention so we will not miss our children's daily lives. It is the little things that truly matter when we look back on our lives with them. Great book. I would recommend it to all mothers.
