Life is too short

The light from the stars shines down brightly
The moon glistens off the snow
The night air is so still and silent
Lying by the fire watching the flames dance
These are all things we take for granted
Believing the sun will rise everyday
If we donít begin to appreciate the simple joys in life, how are we to appreciate each other?
We take for granted that we are born, grow up, fall in love, get married, and have children
Not everyone has these options.
You must learn to cherish every moment you have
Take the time to enjoy the little pleasures in life
Smell the flowers, watch the birds, smile be happy
Life is way to short to spend it in a rush
Take the opportunities you are given, they may not be there tomorrow
Most of all if you are lucky enough to find true love donít ever let it go
They him you love him no matter the circumstances
He may not be there tomorrow
Take the time to enjoy life instead of trying to change it all the time.
