Dear Friend,
I'm reading more and dusting less. I'm sitting on my porch and admiring the view without fussing about the weeds in the 
yard. I'm spending more time with my family and friends and less time working.
-
Whenever possible, life should be a pattern of experiences to savor, not to endure. I'm trying to recognize these moments now and cherish them.
-
I'm not "saving" anything; we use our good china and crystal for every special event such as losing a pound,
getting the sink unstopped, or the first Rose blossom.
-
I wear my good blazer to the market.
My theory is if I look prosperous, I can shell out $28.49 for one small bag of groceries. I'm not saving my good clothes for special parties, but wearing them for clerks at K-Mart and tellers at the bank.
-
"Someday" and "one of these days" are losing their grip on my vocabulary. If it's worth seeing or hearing or doing, I want to see and hear and do it now
-
I'm not sure what others would've done had they known they wouldn't be here for the tomorrow that we all take for granted. I think they would have called family members and a few close friends. They might have called a few former friends to apologize and mend fences for past squabbles. I like to think they would have gone out for a Chinese dinner or for whatever their favorite food was.
-
I'm guessing; I'll never know.

It's those little things left undone that would make me angry if I knew my hours were limited. Angry because I hadn't written certain letters that I intended to write one of these days. Angry and sorry that I didn't tell my wife, children and parents often enough how much I truly love them. I'm trying very hard not to put off, hold back, or save anything that would add laughter and luster to our lives. And every morning when I open my eyes, tell myself that it is special.
Every day, every minute, every breath, truly is a gift from God.
Take a few minutes to send this link to a few people you care about, just to let them know that you're thinking of them.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
