Sometimes, we think that we have all the time.

As each day goes quietly away, we are losing time.

A day runs into a week and a week becomes a month.

And, before we know a month has become a year.


As we look back on that year, where did it go, we ask.

Oh, there is so much that I wanted to do.

I forgot to send that card to that sick friend.

Oh, she will understand that is what friends do.


But, why put something off for tomorrow,

When you can do that job for today.

Tomorrow never comes, for tomorrow becomes today,

And today becomes yesterday.


So, if you have that child who wants to play

then take the time.

For, that child will be grown tomorrow.

And, only her memories will remain.


So, live each day as if it is your last.

Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today.

Don't leave unfinished business to the very last.


Love your children, family, and friends

Like there is no tomorrow.

For, tomorrow may never come.

Today Is the Day to Live

To all of my friends and family

The sky above seems cloudy and gray,
And, a rainbow can not be found.
If this world is spinning too fast,
And it doesn't ever seem to stop.

If everyone around you is smiling,
But all you can do is frown.
Take a look around you at the
Wonders of God's green land.

Laughing children playing in the park
With eyes sparkling so bright.
A mother rocks her newborn singing
Lullabies drifting through the night.

Imagine floating with a butterfly,
As she flutters between the flowers,
Or listening to the crickets on the
Porch in the summer night's breeze.

Think of the taste of cotton candy,
As it melts upon your tongue,
Or the song of the morning birds,
As each day is begun.

Think not of what life owes you,
But of the blessings that you have.
Forget about tomorrow, because
Today is the day worth living.
