Wednesday - Today is a Gift


What was the story today?
Was there a story today?

The day tripped by so fast that I did not notice.

Why did that happen?

Because I was so focused on the future -
on the what might be
that I lost the precious what was.

I mislaid the gift of today.

Really like this post! A good reminder. The question is... did we learn and are working to protect our today, instead of losing another to worries of the future? Or can we find a gentle balance... keep today, still preprare for tomorrow?
