“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, savor you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it will not always be so.”

[Mary Jean Irion]


“There is surely nothing other than the single purpose of the present moment. A person’s life is a succession of moment after moment,” Yamamoto Tsunetomo wrote in the 1600’s. “When one fully understands the present moment, there will be nothing else to do and nothing else to pursue.”


Let us give thanks for the blessings in the beauty and benevolence of this day.
