I appreciate today! Today is a treasure! When a person feels "down", they can just look around to see others having difficult times. We all have today, a "present" although we may not think of it as a "gift" but it is. As I spend time with my best friend,Carol, who has cancer, I realize that I am here today , as we all are. We can appreciate the day by giving to others , just like Carol is doing. When my son , Michael and I visit Carol and" her family" , we feel like "family ".Carol's family say ," you are part of our family" and stay for soup !When we visit Carol, in her"hospital bed" at "home", she is giving us the ceramic "angels "and rabbits she had made. But then Carol has given all her life in giving me friendship, "angels" and" special" necklaces. But most importantly , this"silent angel' has given me those "treasured todays" when we ate lunch together every Friday for the last two years. Even" today" she doesn't "sit down " but walks around to get me "tea" , feed her grandson and spend "today " with her "family". We are "truly treasured" by Carol and she is "our treasure". Maybe " today is treasured' because of the people we "treasure "in our lives. We all have a "journey" in life .How we "treasure every day "makes the journey worthwhile! Carol's life has had its "dips" in the road like others have had, but it has never stopped Carol in her "treasured " journey. Carol's life storybook has pages and pages of giving to her family, friends and others. Carol's storybook has "treasured todays".
