Today

Sometimes it's hard to know which direction to look. For a long time I kept looking back, wondering if decisions I'd made were right and pondering lost 'what ifs'. There is a verse which says that oftentimes we gaze so longingly into the past that we fail to see the door that opens before us. How very true...

I am at a place in my life where I no longer look back. Beautiful memories are recalled of moments cherished, and I smile at the blessings I have been graced with. But I don't live there anymore. I am ready for time to stand still just a bit so I can relish each precious day and store them forever in my photo album.

This day is my gift. No more looking over my shoulder nor scanning the horizon for tomorrow. Today is the key note of my symphony...and how beautiful is the music!

Great picture of your daughter. Great words too, I am almost there myself.

Such lovely thoughts; I enjoyed reading your blog. I also cherish each day and try to find value in what might be called the mundane.

Yes, yes, if only time would stand still for just a while... it moves so fast...so fast... too fast.
