Today is one in a million. A million chances to do things differently. A million chances to apologize, to tell someone you forgive him, to tell someone you love her. Today is another chance to hold your grandchild, to take your daughter to the park, wrestle gently with your son in the backyard, or just listen to a friend completely and intently. Today is a one in a million chance to see another glorious sunrise and feel the soft breeze on your cheeks. It is another chance to mourn with loving remembrance loved ones who have gone ahead before us. It is another chance to celebrate those we still have with us. We have a chance today to extend a hand in kindness, friendship, or assistance. Today may be the day to build a sandcastle on the beach, or sit home quietly relishing the life you have at this moment. Whatever today is, it is your chance, your time, your life.
Take the time that is given to you and live it to the best of your abilities.
Embrace the present moment and accept its possibilities for growth, for change, for love.
Know that you cannot ever get this day back once it has passed.
The moments we are given are best lived with the presence of the Spirit in our souls.
