Many of us feel routine to be so boring. We crib and complain that life is so mundane devoid of anything exciting. We just carry on with it, promising ourselves to plan something different and challenging soon.

But, one phone call or incident is all it takes to turn our routine upside down. Diagnosis of a medical condition, untimely death of a family member, an accident or any untoward incident can upset our life beyond control. God forbid an eventuality like this happen to anyone,  it is only then, that we appreciate the value and goodness of life going on smoothly, as in a routine.

Be thankful for routines too. It only indicates that ALL IS WELL!
