Words to Live By
Aren't these words true? My Grandmother saves everything for a special occasion. She has beautiful candles but won't light them because she wants to save them for a special occasion. In the meantime the candles have grown thick with dust and start looking a little shabby. She does the same thing with pretty shirts or jewelry; always waiting for that special occasion.
I use to be like that. I have to fight hard against the urge to save something for a special occasion. I guess that's just how I was reared.
Every day of your life is a special occasion because you are here to enjoy it, to savor each moment, to love others. So many times we forget this. We get caught up in that day-to-day living that we forget how to live.
So maybe today you can just take a few moments today to celebrate your life; mark it as a special occasion. I think you might just enjoy it.
