I found it by LovelyMissKait and I am glad to place it on my blog for all who read it

One day a woman's husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't "anymore".

No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more "just one minute."

Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say good-bye, or say "I love you."

So while we have it, it's best we love it, care for it, fix it when it's broken and heal it when it's sick.

This is true of old cars... And children with bad report cards, and dogs with bad hips, and aging parents and grandparents We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it.

Some things we keep -- like a best friend who moved away or a sister-in-law after divorce. There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what.

Life is important, like people we know who are special. And so, we keep them close!

I received this from someone who thought I was a 'keeper'! Then I sent it to the people I think of in the same way... Now it's your turn to send this to all those people who are "keepers" in your life, including the person who sent it, if you feel that way. Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you love them?

Let every one of your friends know you love them. Even if you think they don't love you back. And just in case I'm gone tomorrow:


Live today because tomorrow is not promised.

15 things to think about everyday

1. The things you’re grateful to have

Think of the things you’re grateful for.

Food, shelter, family, friends, a car,

all the big and small things many aren’t fortunate to have.

2. The things you’re grateful NOT to have

Each of us can come up with something we’re grateful not to have.
Perhaps you’re grateful not to have a disease, enormous debts,
or perhaps you’re happy you don’t have a lot of money.

3. What you want to do today

Quick thoughts about the daily goals you want to accomplish

and the plans you’ll need to take to get them done.

4. What the future holds

Think about what tomorrow, the next month,

or even the next five years will bring you.

5. Think about one of your fears

We all have fears, some are big and some are small.

Focus your thoughts on one.

6. Think of a way to face that fear

Think of one way in which you can face your fear.

Even if it’s something small it’ll bring you one step closer to fear’s face.

7. One new thing you’d like to do

Think of something new you’d like to try. Do this every day you possibly can, you’ll never have too many goals and dreams.

8. The things you didn’t accomplish yesterday

Think about the things you wanted to get done yesterday, but didn’t. Then plan on getting them done today.

9. Your greatest qualities

Every day think about the things that make you a great person.

It’ll give you confidence and ambition to tackle anything.

10. What you don’t like about yourself

We each have something we don’t like about ourselves.

Perhaps you are too fearful, too quiet, or too arrogant.

11. How you can change what you don’t like about yourself

Think of some ways you can change.

Sometimes it doesn’t take as long as you might think.

12. How you can make someone else’s day a little brighter

Maybe send a friend a card to show you’re thinking of them.
Maybe buy a coworker just because.
Or even just complementing someone can make their day a little brighter.

13. Your life goals

You won’t be able to think of all of your goals in life because

you’ll always be adding more to your list.

However, think about your current biggest dreams and goals.

You can’t forget what you’re aiming for.

14. How yesterday’s problems are today’s motivation

Don’t let the problems of your past prevent you from moving forward.

Think of how you can use the problems to motivate yourself to change and resolve.

15. You only have one life

Think about this: you only have one shot at life.

So make the most out of every second you have.

Reminding yourself of this will help you seize each day.

November days, the first snow

November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.

Deep into autumn
and this caterpillar
still not a butterfly
