“I hope I can be like the autumn leaf, who looked at the sky and lived. And when it was time to leave, gracefully it knew life was a gift.” – Dodinsky
We live in such a fast paced world today. Always on the move. No time to enjoy life. We have became a society of instant gratification.
So many people take others for granted and even life itself. We assume that when the sun rises tomorrow everything will be the same. Will it?
We are so busy that we don’t take the time to reach out to friends and family to just hear their voice or to see how they are doing. There is no guarantee that they will enjoy tomorrow. There is no guarantee that any of us will see the next sunrise.
How many times have you entertained the idea of calling them or sending a note or card and you didn’t do it? Then a couple weeks later you hear that death has knocked upon their door.
Life is precious. Friendship is a gift. Celebrate life every day and give thanks that you were given another day to enjoy life, friends and family. Don’t take anything or anyone for granted.
Get up early and watch the sunrise or at the end of the day sit, be still and watch the sun set. Stop! Slow down! Take the time to enjoy your life, family and friends. Tomorrow may be to late.

So true Wayne. I was up the other morning at 4..something watching the moon go down and then the sun come up to reveal the 5 deer hanging around to mow my lawn between the fallen leaves of Autumn. Then finding ways to encourage others is so worth it.
That’s awesome Gary. People who have never done that have no idea the kind of feeling you experienced. I always try to encourage folks to experience the wonders of Mother Earth.
Wise words indeed, no one gets younger.
