'T' is for Today.

I was going to use this Monday of our long weekend for study, I was going to pull out the books and do a bit more and leave my boys to entertain themselves for the day.  

 Then I thought to myself - there is time enough for study.   

Today is my gift.  Today I will never get given back to me ever, never again.
  
If I were to die tomorrow, then at least for today I have lived.
 At least, for today, I found time to enjoy the rain on my garden. . . .
at least, for today, I got to write letters with my boys. . . . . .


at least, for today, I will have coloured and drawn. . . . . . 

If I die tomorrow, then, at least today, I will have seen my boys set up their rally racing indoor course. . . . . .

and watched as they taped and rolled the cardboard for their jumps and ramps. . . . . .

at least today, I will have tidied our wardrobes and have had a mini clean out, so then there will be less for hubbie to sort through . . . . . .

 
at least today, I would have snuggled with my darling boys and read a bit more of our current favourite book right now.  

If tomorrow was the day that was marked for me to breathe no more, then at least today I would have had a chance to make a few more squares for charity. . . . . .

Today is your gift too, make the most of it, treasure it, hold it gently with both your hands, savour each particle of it, the low bits the high bits, the choccie chip bits and the bits in between.  You will never get them back again, absolutely never.  

I am out of here for today, it's happy hour at our place now, and I am thirsty.  I hear the feint but persistent calling of a board game, it's getting louder. . . . . 

Thanks so much for stopping by my place today.

Today's blog post has been brought to you by the letter T, the letter T for Today . . . . . . and for Thirsty.

so true, I was going to set aside today for study but then I thought to myself, why do it today when 'le familia' is all here....much better to do it tomorrow when I am on my own!!! We have had our respite foster girl Bessie with us this weekend and we have had LOTS of go slow family time doing things like playing snap, going to the park, making home-made pizzas and baking bread, playing 'tea parties' with the dolls, reading stories and more stories,drawing pictures, watching 'Tangled' together as a family....all such feel good stuff...I do believe it has nourished my mind and my soul. I love that Shaun, my M and I all get to be a small part of Bessie's life...she brings us such joy. Hope you have a lovely cuppa or two!! TK xx
