    As Time Passes By

    It's hard to assume then dreams become inadequate to make it real. Hence, cherish the moment and live in it until it becomes a lasting memory which can make you smile in the future as an enduring remembrance of the hours passed and days that were gone.

    Each Heart Beat Has It's Own Time

    I used to say day by day, then it was breath by breath. Now I know each heart beat has it's own time. Cherish every second for what it is and don't worry about what tomorrow holds. ~ easier said than done of course ~
