Today Is All We Have

                  (Photo by Susan, "Writing Straight from the Heart")


      "Nothing is worth more than this day."
                                                                        Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

On this Sunday, may you find deep peace.
Also, may you find laughter.
No matter where you are in the world,
May a sense of wonder fill your heart.
May you feel gratitude for just being alive!
Whether it's snowing or
whether the sky is filled with sun where you live,
Whether you woke up happy or sad,
Whether you have a pocket filled with money
or whether you don't have a dime to your name,
May the rest of this day be all you want it to be.
For knowing that this day is all we have is wealth, in itself.
My wish is that while reading this, you will smile and feel happy.

Beautifully stated, and so true. I used to keep that Goethe quote on my refrig. Nothing is worth more than this day.

Happy Sunday!

Beautiful picture, Susan!

How many times do we miss the simple pleasures in life because we're waiting for something big to happen? I'm a lot happier when I live with a grateful heart.
