{stacking one good day on another...}

{con't from last post}
....days are the bite-size portions of life
Eighty-four thousand heartbeats.
One thousand four hundred and forty minute.
A completer rotation of the earth.
A circle of the sundial.
Two dozen flips of the hourglass.
Both a sunrise and a sunset.
A brand-spanking -new, unsoiled, untouched, uncharted,
and unused day!
A gift of twenty-four unlived, unexplored hours.
AND if you can stack one good day on another
and another, you will link together a good life.
{Max Lucado.... Every Day Deserves a Chance}
Friday Pretties
{thought I would share my pink bucketful of pink petunias}

please take a minute to visit
she is hosting Friday Pretties
sending extra love for her sister Sherrie today xoxo

Lovely thought, Koralee. I think we often let little things go by. Less so, perhaps, in the summer, but we still don't take time to look around us. So much to see! Each and every day.

Karen said...

Very pretty Friday Pretties. :> This post reminds me of a little bit of paper from my grandmother (from years ago) that talks about chosing what you are going to use this day of your life for. We keep it on our fridge to remind us that when the day is over, it is gone and to make the most out of the time we have. It reminds us to try to let the little things go. Sweet post, Koralee! :>
