From East Wichita News 1942


BEGIN TODAY


Dream not too much about what

you'll do to-morrow,


How well you'll work perhaps

another year;


Tomorrow's chance you do not

borrow--

Today is here.


Boast not to much of mountains

you will master,

The while you linger in the vaile

below.


To dream is well,but plodding

brings us faster

To where we want to go.


Swear not someday to break some

habit's fetter.


When this old year is dead and

passed away;

If you have need of living wiser,

better,


Begin today

Betty, that's so neat... And to think, it was written the year I was born!!!! AND--it's still appropriate TODAY... Wow!!!!!

I did send our friend Betty an email just letting her know that I was thinking about her and praying for both her husband and her. I didn't hear back--so things must not be good with him... Let's keep praying.

Have a wonderful Easter.
Hugs,
Betsy
