Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
There are two days in every week that we should not worry about,
two days that should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
One is yesterday, with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.
Yesterday has passed, forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday. We cannot undo a single act we performed. Nor can we erase a single word we’ve said – yesterday is gone!
The other day we should not worry about is tomorrow, with its impossible adversaries, its burden, its hopeful promise and poor performance. Tomorrow is beyond our control.
Tomorrow’s sun will rise either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds – but it will rise.
And until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.
This leaves only one day – today. Any person can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when we add the burdens of yesterday and tomorrow that we can break down.
It is not the experience of today that drives people mad – it is the remorse of bitterness for something which happened yesterday, and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.
Let us, therefore, live one day at a time!
I've always liked this quote and it pretty much sums up what I figured out to be my happy place for blogging. Live one day at a time with a grateful heart for the many blessings that come my way and post bout things I love once a week to keep in touch with my esteemed blogging sisters.
Thank you to to all who enjoy Mosaic Monday and have left kind and encouraging comments that I'm considered a good host. They are humbling, and much appreciated.
As I stated in my last post though, it's time to move on and hand over the meme to another blogger if anyone is interested.
The pond is always a place of activity, whether from the frogs calling or the 30 plus goldfish jostling each other at feeding time. A neighbour brought over a couple dozen toad tadpoles that were caught in his pool cover but they're either hiding or became lunch for Kermit and his pals.
and most of the garlic scapes from the garden were ready to snip. I'm going to try a pesto recipe from FaceBook with them which looks quite tasty.
This doesn't look like much but it's the tip from a branch on the blue spruce in the backyard. I watched a grackle go around the bottom of the tree and pull a bunch off, leaving them on the ground. Don't know what that's about. lol
My husband and I picked strawberries this morning at 8 am before the temperature soared to almost 90F with chance of a thunderstorm. In need of a knee replacement, he did pretty good crawling along the straw-lined path with his knee brace on.
After seeing a fresh strawberry pie on my friend Beth's FB, I knew a pie was in order for us too. Mine is a baked rendition with a crumble topping and I even made my own pastry in the blender. Usually I have a Pillsbury box of pie dough in the fridge, it's so easy to use!
Most days afternoon tea is in the teahouse by our pond and I'll leave you with a picture of Topaz who likes to sit out there with us. Today, however I'll stay indoors where it's cool, I have a maple tea brewing in the teapot and it's about ready for me.
Happy Gardening, take time for tea.
