             One Day at a Time

                          

                   There are two days in every week about which we should
                    not worry, two days which should be kept free from fear
                          and apprehension. One of these days is Yesterday with all its
                             mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.
                                Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money
                         in the world cannot bring back Yesterday. We cannot undo
                     a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word
            we said. Yesterday is gone forever.
                              The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow with all
                     its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and
              its poor performance; Tomorrow is also beyond our
                              immediate control. Tomorrow's sun will rise, either in splendor
                     or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise. Until it does,
                   we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is yet to be born.
                 This leaves only one day, Today. Any person can fight
             the battle of just one day. It is when you and I add
                    the burdens of those two awful eternity's Yesterday and
                Tomorrow that we break down.
                       It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad,
          it is the remorse or bitterness of something which
                                   happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.
                    Let us, therefore; live but one day at a time
