‘We break up soon!’
‘My exams finish on Friday!’
‘I collect my new sports car tomorrow!’
Sorry. I lied about the sports car..
We’re all looking forward to something.
We need that light at the end of our tunnel.
Yesterday I heard about a young mum with terminal cancer.
She’s already well past her ‘Live Until’ date.
And guess what?
She’s doing loads of stuff. Not only exciting things but ordinary things too –
- helping at her child’s school
- giving away her precious time.
It made me think.
If I only had one day left, what would I do with it?
Impossible to say.
How on earth would I choose?
It also made me think about how much more care I should give to how to use my precious time. Why not pop over to read Emily Peck’s post on June 24th – you’ll need to scroll down the page to find it – about what we could do with Extra Time.
A final thought for you…
as you write that lengthy To Do list and rush off to the office/supermarket/school/playgroup/garden/meeting/station/bus stop/kitchen for that last coffee before you DO start…
‘Today is a gift which is why it’s called the ‘present’.
How would you choose to spend your last day?
