Today is a Gift

Our Words for the Week reflection come from Ray Lammie and his Thought for the Day.

I was given a most precious gift this morning when I woke up. It’s a gift I never received before. It’s one I can’t keep, can’t return, can’t save, and don’t know how well it will really work. I do know it’s a most wonderful and beautiful gift. I hope I value and appreciate it enough to use it wisely.

That gift is “this day!” Enjoy yours, and make it a very special one.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Put blinders on to those things that conspire to hold you back, especially the ones in your own head. — Meryl Streep

    The older I get, the more I appreciate every day as a gift to be savored. With Ray Lammie I pray to “value and appreciate it enough to use it wisely.” Thank you, Joe!

  3. Reblogged this on Cat Lyon's Holiday Reading & Writing Den and commented:
    I am very heartbroken to share this as our dear friend and one of the most caring and kind men I have ever been blessed to know and call “My Friend (Papa Joe)”…

    Author, Joe Siccardi has been called home to the LORD…
    He had a major stroke he could not recover from last week on December 9th, 2020, and was in the hospital for almost a week.

    He had significant damage and was called home to heaven. Please keep his family in prayers of strength and comfort as they lay him to rest in eternal peace…I am utterly heartbroken and will share more at a later time. He surely will be missed and has left his FAMILY a beautiful Literary Legacy Joe had given up through all his BOOKS…
