Poem in My Heart

So many things and ideas I want to do and so little energy in my day. I have to constantly remind myself of what is truly important in my life. My husband, kids and grandkidlets are top priority. This poem also reflects what I believe about our days on earth.

Blessings on all of you today~~~~~

Count That Day Lost

If you sit down at set of sun
And count the acts that you have done,
And, counting, find
One self-denying deed, one word
That eased the heart of him who heard,
One glance most kind
That fell like sunshine where it went --
Then you may count that day well spent.

But if, through all the livelong day,
You've cheered no heart, by yea or nay --
If, through it all
You've nothing done that you can trace
That brought the sunshine to one face--
No act most small
That helped some soul and nothing cost --
Then count that day as worse than lost.

George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)
