Today

Today 

Author Unknown  


We shall do much in the years to come,
but what have we done today?
We shall give our gold in a princely sum,
but what did we give today?
We shall lift the heart and dry the tear,
We shall plant a hope in the place of fear,
We shall speak the words of love and cheer
but what did we speak today?

We shall be so kind in the afterwhile,
but what have we been today?
We shall bring each lonely life a smile,
but what have we brought today?
We shall give to truth a grander birth,
And to steadfast faith a deeper worth,
We shall feed the hungering souls of earth,
but whom have we fed today?

We shall reap such joys in the by and by,
but what have we sown today?
We shall build us mansions in the sky,
but what have we built today?
'Tis sweet in idle dreams to bask,
but here and now do we do our task?
Yes, this is the thing our souls must ask,
"What have we done today?"

Do you daydream? Does your mind wander off to utopia, nirvana? Is there such a place?

Staying in the moment is difficult. Today is all we have and without living today there will be no tomorrow. Today is the foundation for tomorrow.

We shouldn't ask for more if we aren't thankful for what we already have. What we already have is here today - let's appreciate the opportunities we have today and take advantage of them. Tomorrow will take care of itself.

Today I was asked to do the Indiana route as I said earlier. I am always thankful for the extra money - however, I seem to think "How can I spend this extra money"? Not a problem. I stopped at a fishing place and got 4 little tubs of red worms for my compost bin. Red worms have big appetites and their "castings" (known to the rest of us as poop) is very rich and good for plants. There were just $2.65 a tub. Duane has drilled holes all over a metal trash can with a lid and I put my kitchen scraps and some shredded paper in there and the worms are happy campers eating, pooping, and reproducing.

I sent in an order yesterday for some more rose bushes and a dogwood tree. There was 20% off for orders of $125 or more so what was I to do? It seems I always lose some rose bushes over the winter so I did need to replace them. The dogwood tree I just wanted. What can I say. Don't go to waysidegardens.com unless you are very strong or fatquartershop.com for that matter (great sale area).

I was asked to drive an armored truck again next Thursday but I think I already spent that money. :-)
