Each day we are given is a gift, and it’s a one-of-a-kind thing. It’s not easy to remember this when things happen to us during the day, so we wish the remaining hours might move on so we can get to the next (and perhaps better) day. Rather than savoring what we have been afforded that unique day, we too often wish for a change to another. When we do this, days pass all too fast…and that turns into weeks, months and years. If you are older than fifty you know what I’m talking about. The old saying “take time to small the roses” is a good one. Hours, days, weeks, months and years pass all to quickly and our time on earth is not unlimited. So, sit back and be thankful for what’s around you…right now…because those single, unique moments are never going to be there for you again.
PS: If you look closely in this photo I made (click to enlarge it), you’ll see two crows sitting in the top right. They were there when I made the photo, but within seconds afterwards they were gone…most likely forever from my view.
