“Life is not a race-but indeed a journey. Be honest. Work hard. Be choosy. Say “thank you,” “I love you,” and “great job” to someone each day. Go to church, take time for prayer. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Let your handshake mean more than pen and paper. Love your life and what you’ve been given, it is not accidental – search for your purpose and do it as best you can. Dreaming does matter. It allows you to become that which you aspire to be. Laugh often. Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them. Some of the best things really are free. Do not worry, less wrinkles are more becoming. Forgive, it frees the soul. Take time for yourself – plan for longevity. Recognize the special people you’ve been blessed to know. Live for today, enjoy the moment.” ― Bonnie Mohn
This saying hangs eloquently in my hallway, appropriately in a place where I walk dozens of times a day. I can’t help but re-read it, if not tidbits of it, each time.
With each verse, my heart sings louder!
I am reminded of the goodness life is full of and the blessings set before me- of the things that really matter and things that keep us going- of the things I seem to forget and let drift from the forefront. It encourages me to live for the moment and be the best me possible, not only for myself, but for God and for others. And while I may stumble at times and fall, I pray to never cease and forget!
God is so good and I wish to glorify him in all that I do.
