Oh, what a gift- our Life! Just stop and think; each day that comes and goes slips quickly by. Before we know it- gone in just a blink; another follows to live well- apply. Sometimes, a banked-on, steady gift it is- lived to the fullest- or just splurged away. With every breath should come a simple quiz; how many more are left after today. Accept each day with mind and heart as though it is the only one left on our pile; for, over time, those gifted days will flow away unused- or labeled with a smile. No expiration stamped on each Lifetime- it passes on as silent as a mime.
