    When you look at it from that perspective, it serves as a great reminder that every day is indeed a gift. 💗

    • Susan says:

      I mentioned to a patient once how I was wishing for Friday to get here.
      He was an AIDS patient and said back “Don’t wish your days away.”
      Put me in my place – in a good way!

  2. Jim says:

    I wake up in the morning and hope I’m physically better than the day before. It hasn’t worked since last June but it did work once before so I have faith. 🙂

  3. Beth says:

    Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
    To the last syllable of recorded time;
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.

    Serious illnesses and those that are terminal can bring a man to his knees–force him pray for life as if he shouldn’t have prayed for it every day anyway. Thanks for the reminder that every day is a gift from the creator of life.

    Thought this might be relevant: Odetta singing “Go down sunshine, see what tomorrow brings….” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDWxl5Z0bbI

    I know that’s right. If I’d read this yesterday, I would have felt guilty. Reading it today, I am grateful!

    • Susan says:

      I get cocky after 30 years in the same profession…then stuff like this, inspired by something a terminal patient said to me, puts my feet back on the ground.

  7. Before I go to bed, I always pray to give me strength to get through another day, .
