One Day at a Time

I’ve always been a worrier—the kind of person who worries if she doesn’t have anything to worry about. And now that my life has been turned upside down, I realize how useless my worries have been.

My daughter, who might be the strongest person I know, tells me she’s taking life one day at a time now that her oldest child, my oldest grandson, has been diagnosed with a persistent and stubborn neuroendocrine tumor.

I think that one day at a time thing is a mighty fine idea. Don’t worry about tomorrow. Don’t think about what we might’ve done differently the day before or the day before that. Just live and be grateful for every day.

I’m working really hard at doing just that.

Peace, people.

  1. Lesley, I am not religious. I wills tate that upfront. But I have always the line from the song, One Day at A Time…. Tomorrow may never be mine. And I live by that line. Frequently to the max. However, sometimes it is very hard. Especially to get the big girl pants on at the times when you just want to know tomorrow will be fine. and there for you as it is today, when it involves those you love most. Keep your chin up my friend. Always here if you need to talk.
