t is for: today


i want to live each day
as if it were a blessing;
 because really,
 is there
anything better than
this moment
right now?

it is so easy to
forget and wrap ourselves
in all the comings and goings
of everyday life-
we get so busy,
that we forget to 
just treasure the moment
right now.

what would happen
if we didn't worry about
all the things that
we need
to get done today-
what if we took
pleasure in this day,
right now?

today is beautiful
it is a gift
to be opened and 
right now.

will you join me
in basking
in the joy of
of this moment
right now?

You should teach classes in how to live in the moment, on how to be a joyful person.

This blog is such an uplifting and happy place Melody. I enjoy each and every visit I make here.

Hi Melody Mae .. I'm doing that today .. taking life as it comes .. the m/c at home won't connect - the library is full of children running around, people talking on mobile phones .. still I'm on line, alive and I'll have a nice walk back .. even better if it doesn't rain before I get outside - but England needs the rain - so let it rain.

Cheers Hilary
