#27 of 31 Today


Today I was reminded how short life really is,     
            to appreciate my family and friends,
            to make each moment count.

Today I was reminded to be kind, 
           even when I don't feel like it
           because you just never know.
           
Today I was reminded to be patient
           because what's easy to some
           brings others to tears.

Today I was reminded
           while my life isn't perfect 
           and happy all the time
           it is my life and I need enjoy it.

  2. A very simple way to say some really powerful things. I really like the third stanza--I need to remember it.

  6. Unfortunately in the day to day of life we often forget what is important until something unfortunate happens.

  7. Although these are powerful, positive lessons to keep in mind, the reminder to hold life dear is sobering.

  9. Most of us have this regular need to recenter ourselves, don't we -- to refresh our perspective from time to time. I deeply envy those people who never seem to lose their grounding when it comes to the things you talk about here. Something to aspire to.

    Thoughtful reflection, Deb -- best wishes --

  10. Our lives are so busy and we become so involved that we tend to forget to be thankful for all that we have been blessed with. Thanks for the reminder to enjoy each day as it comes. So sorry for your loss.
