Today is a clean slate. You’ll never get it back with your loved ones. What will you do to make it count?
I lost my two sisters to breast cancer 16 and 11 years ago, respectively. Oh, what I’d give to have another day with each of them. They weren’t around to talk to about parenting or to celebrate milestones. But I can’t dwell on that. They’re celebrating in heaven, and that’s a good thing.
The point is you only have today once. And you can’t get it back. A sticky note on my desk says, “When time is spent, it’s gone forever.” It serves as a reminder for me to take advantage of the times I have with my husband and children, with my extended family, and with friends.
I can make a difference today. I may not get that chance tomorrow.
