Another Day in Paradise
Q: “How are you doing today?”
A: “Just another day in paradise.”
I cringe every time I hear this cliché phrase. Before this
phrase was ruined with overuse by offenders attempting to
be ironic, this phrase had a positive meaning. As a child,
for me this phrase often conjured up images of a long, sandy
beach with palm trees (usually pictured on a postcard sent
from a relative).

General Information
But it begs the question, why in our mind must “paradise”
be a utopia, an intangible Shangri-La while we muddle
through life in the doldrums of earth? If we found paradise,
would we know it? Or would we be equally critical that
there weren’t enough pearls on the pearly gates.
How amazing would it be to wake-up and find ourselves
whisked away to a paradise where countless people
coveted… to live where many will plan their entire year
around a one-week stay. To be home to countless activities
and beautiful natural areas to recreate in. Hmmm…
As I write this, I am looking out at the lush green grass, trees
swaying in the breeze and kids laughing while playing ball.
I am welcomed by friendly faces that genuinely ask how my
day is going. Later on, I may even walk down to the lake
and enjoy a few tranquil moments at the end of the dock.
Another day in paradise? I think so.
Wishing you a great summer,
