Today Is What You Know You Have

Love Today

Being someone who enjoys planning I know how easy it is to fill the coming weeks, months and years with ‘to do’s’.

Reality tells us, however, that the only moment we truly have is now, this moment, today.

Whilst planning is great and necessary if you wish to create the life you deserve and desire it is important to step back and appreciate what you have and what you can do right now.

I came across this verse and wanted to share it here as a reminder to us all to seize the moment… Enjoy!

If Tomorrow Never Comes

If I knew it would be the last time
That I’d see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly,
And pray the Lord your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
That I’d see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss,
And call you back for just one more

If I knew it would be the last time
I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would tape each word and action,
And play them back throughout my days

If I knew it would be the last time,
I would spare an extra minute or two,
To stop and say “I love you,”
Instead of assuming you know I do.

So just in case tomorrow never comes,
And today is all I get,
I’d like to say how much I love you,
And I hope we never will forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
Young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
You get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you’re waiting for tomorrow,
Why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
You’ll surely regret the day.

That you didn’t take that extra time
For a smile, a hug, or a kiss,
And you were too busy to grant someone,
What turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
And whisper in their ear,
That you love them very much, and
You’ll always hold them dear.

Take time to say “I’m sorry,”
“Please forgive me,” “thank you” or “it’s okay”.
And if tomorrow never comes,
You’ll have no regrets about today

~ Norma Cornett Marek ~

Regret is not an option; say what you need to say today, do what you need to do today,  love who you need to love right now…

Live Blissfully
