Well it is here, Christmas Eve...I have a few more hours of work and then back to London to start the festivities...

I just wanted to share a poem that a good friend gave me in a Christmas card this year....


there are 2 days in every week about which we should not worry, 2 days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

one of these days is yesterday with 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.

the other day we should not worry about is tomorrow with its possible adversities, its 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 unborn.

this leaves only one day- TODAY. any person can fight the battles of just one day. it is only when you and I add the burdens of those 2 awful eternities- yesterday and tomorrow that we break down.

it is not the experience of today that drives us mad- it is remorse or bitterness for something which happened yesterday and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.

let us, therefore, live but one day at a time.....

I thought this was a beautiful message for us all to remember...
have a wonderful Christmas Eve...
