The Exchange

What you do today is really important.


You are exchanging a day of your life for it.

Wonderful quote. Sometimes I wonder about each day and the value I give it. Some days I'm more aware than others.

Deb said...

Each day is a gift and you must make the most of it. Nice post as usual!

And that day is the only day each one of us is alive. Nice.

Wow, what an amazing photo! I love it and for sure this day is important, as will be the day that follows it. We are blessed with a daily gift and I try to treat this life as such! One day when this snow disappears I'm going to come out and visit with you, I want to see if I have the courage to get on a horse! That will make for some interesting photos! lol

Have a great week, cheers my friend!

Randy said...

Darn it, I needed to see this earlier today. I did take it easy today even though I should have done the work for my class. I needed to unwind but now feel bad about it.

Farm Girl said...

Dawn you always me me think so deeply. Thank you so much.

Jimmy said...

Never really thought about it that way but you are so right in that we are exchanging a day in our life for each day spent, so we had better make each day worth it :)

A beautiful photo Dawn (just hope it wasn't taken around noon ;-)

And a thought-provoking quote - so make sure you do something important today - besides work !

Lovely Dawn, but, without knowing in which direction you're headed it hard to determine if we are looking at sun up or sun down.

Allison said...

Beautiful, beautiful picture! I love your thought... I hadn't ever really thought of it like that, but it is so true. Thank you for reminding me!

Leminski said...
