How Will You Spend It?

A friend sent me this on e-mail and I wanted to share it with all of you !

 Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest:  Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400.00 in your  private account for your use.
However,this prize has rules, just as  any game has certain rules.
    The first set of rules would be:

       Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you.
      You may not simply transfer money into some other account.
      You may only spend it.

Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400.00 for that day.  
The  second set of rules:
      The bank can end the game without warning; at any time  it can say, Its over, the game is over!  It can  close the account  and you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted right?  Not only for yourself, but for all people you love, right?  Even for people you don't know, because you couldn't  possibly spend it all on yourself, right?  You would try to spend every cent, and use it all, right?


 Each of us is in possession of such a magical  bank. We just can't seem to see it.

               The MAGICAL BANK is  TIME!

Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is  NOT credited to us.

What we haven't lived up that day is forever  lost.

Yesterday is forever gone.

Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank  can dissolve your account at any time....WITHOUT  WARNING.

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400  seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars.

Think about that, and always think of this:

Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you  think.

So take care of yourself, be Happy, Love Deeply and enjoy life!

Here's wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day.

Start spending.

Father's Day

Always a difficult day for me, hard to stand in front of the Father's Day cards and not be able to buy just the right one.  As time goes by, it becomes more clear than before, that there may have never been a card made to describe just how wonderful he was.
So I will think of him today, as I always did . 

 We Thought Of You Today
 We thought of you today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought of you yesterday
And will tomorrow, too.
We think of you in silence
And make no outward show.
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who love you know.
Remembering you is easy,
We do it everyday.

It's the heartache of losing you
That will never go away
