Salutation

Listen to the Salutation of the Dawn.
Look to this Day, for it is Life,
the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the possibilities
and realities of your existence.
The Bliss of Growth --
The Glory of Action --
The Splendor of Beauty --
For yesterday is already a dream and
tomorrow is only a vision:
but today well-lived
makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day.
Such is the Salutation of the dawn.

What a wonderful poem. It was beautiful Adri, a very nice tribute.

Adri, I spent a lot of time last night praying for you all as I'd wake up for whatever reason..I just kept thinking of the heartache and the hole such a lost leaves behind.. I've been praying also for the boys and for you and Matt.
