Sixteen year old Stephen interviewed his terminally ill grandmother for a school project entitled “The Speed of Life.” About five minutes into the interview he began questioning her about her illness and her life situation.
“So what is it like to wake up every morning and know that you are dying?”
“Well,” she replied, “What is it like to wake up every morning and pretend that you are not?”
I love this!
All of us die . . . some without ever really living.
How very true.
“Carpe diem” to that !
Yes. Seize the day!
Now that’s a comeback.
A wise old Girl!
I like this.
It is a good reminder!
It’s all in the mind. That’s what I say. When we wake up in the morning, how do we know it’s not our last day?
I have a friend, who is fond of reminding us that none of us are promised tomorrow, and for some not to even the remainder of today!
