Today we think February 1, 2006 3:56 pm

Today, as you raise your hand to the driver that just cut you off, think
Choose to raise that middle finger, or give a friendly wave

Today, when the children learn that a whole roll of toilet paper won’t flush, think
Yell at them, or give them a hug and tell them it is ok to make mistakes

Today, when you miss the deadline again, think
Self-flaggelate to no end, or focus and get it done

Today, when your loved one snaps at you in stress, think
Sulk away and be hurt, or smile and give a hug

Today, think
Because sometimes tomorrow never comes.

I am so honored!

Or insulted.

I don’t know which.

Oops, I thought you were linking a different post.

Yeah, honored.

Sorry for the confusion. I haven’t had my coffee today and I thought you were linking my latest “Loonies on the path” article. Yes, much less meaningful, but it would have changed the meaning completely, don’t you agree?

Certainly would have taken a different meaning 🙂 Your “I had a neighbor” post deserves an award!
