A friend of mine recently shared this on her dad’s caring bridge site as he battled cancer, and I had to share. Perspective. What a wonderful gift!
Life Begins Each Morning
Whether one is twenty, forty, sixty or eighty;
whether one has succeeded, failed, or just
muddled along–Life Begins Each Morning!
Life is a day–this day. All past days are gone
beyond reviving. All days that still may come
are veiled in mystery. Each new day is Life, and
life begins anew with it.
Each night of life is a wall between today and
the past. Each morning is the open-door to a
new world–new vistas, new aims, new plans,
The greatest fact in life is this, that it never is
too late to start again. Biography simply
overflows with inspiring examples of this truth.
However discouraging your days may have
been, keep this thought burning brightly in your
mind–Life Begins Each Morning!
