"This is the beginning of a new day

. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good."

How true that is..I remind myself every night when I go to bed that this day was one day closer to when I will be gone and tomorrow will be a new day and today is now just a memory. I always look forward to when the kids are coming to visit..3 more days then 2 more and then 1 more and whan they leave it is like the time flew and is gone and also now just a memory. I guess that is what life is all about...memories :)
