Another Ordinary

"I know it sounds a bit cliché
There's no such thing
As just an ordinary day " - Phineas and Ferb

She shuffles through
the piles of leaves
at the edge of the trail,
then clambers up onto a stump,
posing for a photograph.
As I snap the sun washed scene
it occurs to me that this is, perhaps,
the thirteenth
or fourteenth photograph
from this same spot.
The first, of a small girl,
barely walking, who needed to be picked up
and placed on the stump
while her mother worried she might fall.
This last, for now, of a girl
tall enough to ride
a roller-coaster.
I discretely wipe my eyes
as I tuck away
another ordinary day.
