“One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.” Anonymous
Each day is special …no matter what is on your calendar. It is special. It is a gift. I have known about this way to live for years, but I have only put it into practice the last three years. When my husband became unemployed and we set on a new journey of empty nesting and no guaranteed income, I found myself going through periods of panic. Constant worry around the question, “What will become of us?”

Capris: TALBOTS (they were too tight in the spring...fit now!!)
Somehow, one day, I began to be grateful for the fact that we had provisions for that day….food on the table, a roof over our heads, and bills paid, just that day. As I started to live with gratitude just for each day and not worry about the future, my joy returned and was deep and heartfelt. I felt younger, more hopeful....free!
I can do anything for one day:
Today I will walk for exercise and eat healthy meals.
Today I will smile at everyone I see.
Today I will learn something new.
Today I will accomplish as much as possible, but still take time to smell the honeysuckle.
Today I will bless people around me…my husband, my children, my students, fellow teachers and friends, on and off line.
Today I will make a difference.
Tomorrow, I will get up and do it all over again! Goals are good. Vision is important. Dreams are what made America great. However, I will do all of it, one day at a time.
And, of course, today, I will look my best and be very visible on VISIBLE MONDAY and MONDAY MINGLE and MANNEQUIN MONDAY…go see what everyone else is wearing today!
