Let's all remember to take the time to LIVE!!!!

A man opened his wife's drawer and picked up a silk paper wrapped package:

This, - he said - isn't any ordinary package.'

He unwrapped the box and stared at both the silk paper and the box.

She got this the first time they went to New York,8 or 9 years ago.

She has never put it on and saving it for a special occasion.

He got near the bed and placed the gift box next to the other

clothing he was taking to the funeral house,his wife had just died.

He turned and said:

Never save something for a special occasion.Every day in your life is a
special occasion'.

I think about the words and change my lifestyle.

Now I read more and clean less.

I sit on the porch without worrying about anything.

I spend more time with my family,and less at work and party.

I understood that life should be a source of experience to be lived up to,not
survived through.

I no longer keep anything.

I use crystal glasses every day...

I'll wear new clothes to go to the supermarket, if i feel like it.

I don't save my special perfume for special occasions,I use it whenever I
want to.

The words 'Someday...' and ' One Day...' are fading
away from my dictionary.

If it's worth seeing,listening or doing,I want to
see,listen or do it now.

I don't know what the wife would have done if she knew she wouldn't be there the next morning,nobody can tell.

I think she might have called her relatives and closest friends.

She might call old friends to make peace over past quarrels.

I'd like to think she would go out for Chinese food.

It's these small things that I would regret not doing,if I knew my time had come.

Each day, each hour, each minute, is special.Live for today,for tomorrow is
promised to no-one.
