Good Day, Beautiful People.
My mate shared this with me:
SOME DAY & ONE DAY
_A friend of mine opened his wife’s wardrobe and picked up a silk paper wrapped package._
“This,” he said, “isn’t any ordinary package.”_
_He unwrapped the box and stared at both the silk paper and the box and silk satin dresses inside._
_”She got this the first time we went to New York , 8 or 9 years ago. She has never put it on , was saving it for a special occasion. Well, I guess this is it.”_He got near the bed and placed the gift box next to the other clothing he was taking to the funeral house, his wife had just died.__He turned to me and said, “never save something for a ‘special occasion’. Every day in your life is a *’Special occasion'”*_
_I still think those words changed my life.__Now I read more and clean less.__I sit on the porch without worrying about anything.__I spend more time with my family, and less at work._*_I understood that life should be a source of experience to be lived up to, not survived through._*
_I no longer keep anything._
_I use crystal glasses every day.__I’ll wear new clothes to go to the supermarket, if I feel like it._*_I don’t save my special perfume for special occasions, I use it whenever I want to._*_The words *’Someday….’ and ‘ One Day…’*are fading away from my dictionary.__If it’s worth seeing, listening or doing, I want to see, listen or do it now._
_I don’t know what my friend’s wife would have done if she knew she wouldn’t be there the next morning, this nobody can tell.__*Each day, each hour, each minute, is special.*_
_Live for today, for tomorrow is promised to no-one.__If you’re too busy to send this out to other people and you say to yourself that you will send it ‘LATER remember that LATER might never come…
You may or may not read this message before. If you did, may it serve as a kind reminder.
Life is too short for you not to treasure everyday. Be presence wherever you are. If we strife, we will never be happy, joyful and content. Look at what you have and been given, enjoy before it is all gone or too late.

One thought on “Treasure Today”
What a beautiful reminder! Our focus should be on the present, as well as the eternal. This life is a gift from God that should not be taken for granted.
