I'm reading more and dusting less. I'm sitting on the deck and admiring the view without fussing about the weeds in the garden. I'm spending more time with my family and friends and less time in committee meetings. Whenever possible, life should be a pattern of experience to savor, not endure. I'm trying to recognize these moments now and cherish them.

I'm not 'saving' anything. We use our good indian beads, rudraksha for every special event - such as doing away with our karma, getting the sink unstopped, the first class blessing. I no longer save my good perfume for special parties, I now wear it for normal work.

'Someday' and 'one of these days' are losing their grip on my vocabulary. If it's worth seeing or hearing or doing, I want to see and hear and do it NOW.

I'm not sure what my sister would have done had she known that she wouldn't be here for the tomorrow we all take for GRANTED. I think she would have called all our family members and a few close friends. She might have called a few former friends to apologize and mend fences for past squabbles. I like to think she would have gone out for a nice indian vegetarian dinner, her favorite food. I'm guessing... I'll never know. 

It's those little things left undone that would make me angry if only I knew that my hours were limited.

Angry because I put off seeing good friends whom I was going to get in touch with -Someday.

Angry because I hadn't written certain letters that I intended to write-One of these days. 

Angry and sorry that I didn't tell my loved Ones often enough how much I truly love them. 

I'm trying very hard not to Put off, Hold back, or Save anything that would add laughter and luster to our lives. 

And every morning when I open my eyes, I tell myself that it is special. Every day, every minute, every breath truly is...a gift from God.
