A Stitch in Time

Today, like all the rest, is a time of devotion to minor goals. Each small task, started and finished, is one more piece added to life's patchwork pattern. Some pieces are big and bold, full of color; others are tedious and filled with intricate designs; others are only tiny, almost indistinguishable lines stitched across a massive cloth. But, all are part of a master design. And, when all the minor goals are finished and joined to each other, life has drawn to a close -- so that life's end is the final creation -- the finished product.
