Each Day Is A Gift

“Everybody’s working for the weekend.” — lyrics in a song by Loverboy.

That is a great song but is it true?!  Is that really what we are working for?

Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy my weekends and the routines being slightly different.  However, having a son who is pre-school age has helped to learn to appreciate each and every day.

Kids are great at living in the moment and truly making it the best it can be.  Children treat each day as the gift that it is and open up its possibilities like a present.

I wonder why we as adults have such a hard time with that.  We are always watching the clock: “Is it 5 yet so I can go home?”  Or we are wishing our week away to get to the weekend.  Or we are so looking forward to a concert or vacation, that we miss the days leading up to that special occasion.

This summer I am doing my best to savor and appreciate each day that I am given.  Things are new every morning and each time we awake from a night of sleep is a gift.

I hope that you too can realize that each day is a blessing and make the most of it!

A few quotes about time:

“Time is the coin of your life.  It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent.  Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.”  ~Carl Sandburg

“Time is what we want most, but… what we use worst.”  ~William Penn

You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by; but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.”  ~James Matthew Barrie

The Future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.”  ~C.S. Lewis
