“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that
all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical
rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses
that are blooming outside our windows today.”

- Dale Carnegie
(24 Nov 1888 - 01 Nov 1955)

From My Friend, Anthony, of NC - 08/18/15:

For those who think that they've messed up so many times God won't do anything with their life, for those who think that God simply isn't listening, and for those who think they aren't important enough, remember: "For the eternal purposes of the Lord shall roll on, until all his promises shall be fulfilled." (Mormon 8:22)

Don't give yourself too much credit. You can't stop God's plan for you.

   Thank you so much, Anthony!

, 1964


Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today

I'll be a dandy, and I'll be a rover
You'll know who I am by the songs that I sing
I'll feast at your table, I'll sleep in your clover
Who cares what the morrow shall bring

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today

I can't be contented with yesterdays glory
I can't live on promises winter to spring
Today is my moment, now is my story
I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today
