Subject: Today is a gift

Dear all

A few words of wisdom I came across, thought it might be interesting to
share it with you as the new year begins.

Warning: This material is not political!

********************************************



Imagine there is a bank which credits your account each morning with
$86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day, allows you to keep
no cash balance, and every evening cancels whatever part of the amount
you had failed to use during the day.

What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course!

Well, everyone has such a bank. Its name is TIME.

Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.

Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever of this you have failed to
invest to good purpose.

It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. Each day it opens
a new account for you.

Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the
day's deposits, the loss is yours.

There is no going back. There is no drawing against the "tomorrow". You
must live in the present on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get
from it the utmost in health, happiness and success! The clock is
running. Make the most of today.

To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who has failed a grade.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who has given birth to a
pre-mature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of ONE DAY, ask a daily wage laborer who has kids
to feed.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to
meet.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who has missed the
train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who has avoided an
accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLI-SECOND, ask the person who has won a
silver medal in the Olympics.

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you
shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time ...
and remember that time waits for no one. . .

Yesterday is history
Tomorrow a mystery
Today is a gift
That's why it's called the present!
