It’s a New Day – What Do You Think?

You know, sometimes here at Grandparentslink we find a thought or idea we just can’t wait to share with you. This one definitely made us stop and take a deep breath – what do you think?

This is the beginning of a new day.
You have been given this day to use as you will.
You can waste it or use it for good.
What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever.
In its place is something that you have left behind.
Let it be something good.
