One Day at a Time

We can't change the past-
But we can gather up
Its lessons and move on,
Stronger and wiser.

We can't control the future-
But we can send our dreams
Ahead of us
To help prepare the way.

We can live each moment,
Heart and soul,
And cherish this day's
Greatest gift-
The gift of now.

May peace with the past
And faith in the future
Gently guide you
Through each precious
Moment of today.

I have been back in Colorado helping my parents while my Dad is recovering from a month long traumatic illness. While helping Dad my wonderful Sister-in-law suffered a Brain Aneurysm and was life flighted to a Denver Hospital. The surgery was a success BUT she will have weeks of rehabilitation.

Huge your kids and family and be thankful for every day you have with them!

P.S. Dad was losing his hair soooo I buzzed his head! My brother Rich put his Elvis mask on Dad's head...Dad is "The King"!

I am so sorry to hear about all the things going on in your life Patty. I wish your Dad and Sister-in-law quick recovery's.

We always take for granite the things that mean the most to us. We think they will always be there. But sometimes we just don't have control. The thing we do have control over is keeping in touch and loving those ones that are the closest to us. Not forgeting lots of Hugs too!

What a wonderful poem. It is so true.

Tell your dad he makes a handsome Elvis!
