The Gift of 100 Days



As of September 22nd, which is tomorrow, there are 100 days left in the year. 

It makes me stop and think.  I'm so used to time rushing by, that I'm already starting to panic about how busy the next few months are going to be.  We have two milestone family birthdays to plan and celebrate, a baby shower, and a couple of trips out of town.  Oh, and then there's Thanksgiving and Christmas.

But 100 days! What a gift.  Just as all the activities that we're planning and the holidays and every single day of those one hundred days, are all Gift.

Yet another reminder, and I do need lots of them, to be grateful for each day and be thankful for the gift of that day.  To enjoy and savor and appreciate it, whether it's a special occasion or an ordinary day.  I love the ordinary days and the moments of grace that they bring.

Enjoy your wonderful gift of today!

Wow, 100 days left, that's quite a challenge, isn't it? I too thank God for the ordinary days, what a blessing a nice plain even dull day is. But your post reminds me that I had better get out my pencil and notebook and start planning for some of the upcoming days that won't be so ordinary. I do love the coming celebrations but have learned they don't happen as smoothly without a little planning.

Happy 100 days to you,Karen,

It's amazing how quickly the year flies by, isn't it? I realized the other day that starting tomorrow, it is only three months until Christmas. Gaah!
