CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

It seems like the last few weeks have been filled with story after story of tragic accidents and loss of life. It’s easy to get caught up in our own lives and worry about the “stresses of tomorrow” – discounting the blessings of today by worrying about what we may face tomorrow. However, we aren’t guaranteed tomorrow. Worrying about tomorrow doesn’t take away those troubles; it simply steals the joy from today.

I’m terrible about taking today for granted and worrying about what tomorrow may bring. It’s usually when I’m confronted with a story about tragic loss of life that makes me momentarily realize how precious today really is. I use the word “momentarily” because it typically lasts for a day or so and then I’m right back to worrying about tomorrow.

Let’s celebrate the blessings of today.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”  Calvin Coolidge
