If tomorrow never comes would I have missed it?
Would I have taken the time to experience life and its simple pleasures?
Could I step away and never notice the small things it has to offer?
You must take time to see those things so much more important.
The patterns of Spider webs covered with dew, the struggle of an Ant moving a piece of material three times its size. The rustle of autumn leaves of many colors in Fall. Tiny new-borne fawns frolicking in the tall grass without a care. Trillium's springing forth with all the Spring flowers then gone so soon. If tomorrow never comes I will have lived! Because I have been loved by you.

Very nice thought for a Sunday morning. When life seems to slow down for bit. Nice, peaceful, quite and then the silence is broke by the sound of the kids feet as they get out of bed. What a nice sound.

It's so easy to loose sight of all the wonderful things we're always passing, stop and enjoy the sunset, it only lasts a few minutes....Thanks for the reminder!

I couldn't agree more. Life is too short and we all need to see the beauty around us.
