Just a little talking to myself....

“It is the first day because it has never been before and the last day because it will never be again. Be alive if you can all through this day because this day today is your life. What’s to be done? What’s to be done? Follow your feet. Put on the coffee, start the orange juice, the bacon, the toast. Then go wake up your children and your spouse. Think about the work of your hands… Live in the needs of the day.”

~Frederick Buechner, Listening to Your Life

Thanks for the shout-out. I do love Buechner. And, like Elizabeth, his works have walked me through some tough times.
