Life is a gift to be used every day,
Not to be smothered and hidden away;
It isn't a thing to be stored in the chest
Where you gather your keepsakes and treasure your best;
It isn't a joy to be sipped now and then,
And promptly put back in a dark place again.

Life is a gift that the humblest boast of,
And one that the humblest may well make the most of;
Get out and live it each hour of the day,
Wear it and use it as much as you may;
Don't keep it in niches and corners and grooves~
You'll find that in service it's beauty improves.
 ~~Edgar Guest

Hoping your day today is lovely.  My Miss K is coming over to spend the weekend with me so I'm in the best of moods!  One of the greatest joys in my life is being a Nana!  Knowing my favorite little girl in the whole wide world will be with me for a couple of days has caused
my heart to sing!

Love to you...
