Some advertisements for products stay with us for a long, long time. That proves they were pretty effective ads.
One of those was for Maxwell House Coffee. "It's good to the last drop" consumers were told. I never forgot that and hubs still drinks Maxwell House coffee.
These days, I've applied the coffee slogan to flowers!
Every time a rose bouquet graces our table, each blossom is treasured until the last moment of its life.
Then, when a rose can no longer hold up her head, it is snipped with a pair of scissors.
It is then placed in a little glass dish for a few more days of splendor.
Only when the rose can no longer be called living does it get removed from sight.
This preserving of roses until the last possible moment makes me think of human life, itself.
We must treasure each week, day, and moment of life.
We only get one shot at it so we have to make it the best we can.
Today, I hope you enjoy each moment of the precious gift of life.
