I came across this quote recently and saved it to my desktop. Now that I want to use it I can not remember the source. It is a good one none the less.
Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth or bury my face in the pillow or stretch myself taut or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return. ( Mary Jean Iron )
So very, very true.
