Live Every Moment

by Donna G. (aka Sam Duck)

Uplifting moments are special and few
Don’t wait around for them, 'cause if you do
You’ll always be looking for the perfect minute
And forget to be thankful for time when you’re in it.

Sweet baby kisses, so fleeting, rush by
But we can’t embrace them and hold them with joy
We’re thinking of dishes and laundry to run
We forget time with children is meant to be fun!

Rich chocolate cheesecake ten dollars per slice
Distracted to think of the horrible price
We worry 'bout calories and cash to be spent
Forget the joy purchased by this, our last cent.

We work for the weekend, accomplishments shun
And when Saturday gets here, there’s chores to be done
Can’t wait for vacation - good fun to be had
But there’s time in between to enjoy and be glad!

Remember to live life like it’s your last day
Live each tiny moment in every which way.
Uplifting joy just in things such as these:
A slice of tart apple and piece of Swiss cheese.
