Finish every day and be done with it.

My love and I finish each day with a kiss, a cuddle and an, "I love you".

We start each day in a similar way. This is what will fix us.

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities
no doubt have crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.

Tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with
your old nonsense.

This day is all that is
good and fair.
It is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on yesterdays.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I don't know about beginning each day serenely and with a high spirit, particularly not today but meh, you know, I get up, I get dressed, I breathe, I love. That will just have to do for now.

This evening I'm a little calmer. Breathe Barbara, breathe..... ok much calmer now.


  1. I think that's all we can do in this uncharted journey without our babes...breath, love, love, breath.

  2. I van only Echo what you both have said.

    Love Love Love

  3. Thanks for this, Barbara.

  4. mmmmmm, that's good and heart-warming. Should probably apply it to myself from time to time ;)
