One Egg=One Day

eggs (102k image)
I have a picture of an egg
Painted by a friend
It’s what I see to start each day
Hanging there at my bed’s end

A day is like an egg, you know
Self-contained within its shell
Filled with energy and purpose
And yet remains so very frail

To free the many options here
A crack is all it takes
The shell turns loose potential
Like the dawn as each day breaks

The fate of either is our choice
The egg …to hatch …or boil …or fry
The day …to fill with worthwhile tasks
Or just enjoy as life goes by

All of our days, as all of our eggs
Are ours to use, but listen, folks
Beware of how you handle them
Some of them have double yolks!

    I am thrilled because you will feel so much better when you get some exercise and loose some weight. The money you were making is not going to do you any good if you are not healthy and can enjoy it. You go girl!!!Mom

    Well- life is short and I decided I needed to spend more time living and less time working- I resigned from teaching at the University. No classes this summer! I think I’ll give walking a try!
