Many people treat life as if they had eternity to live it. Some day they will do the things that are really important to them, the things that bring great meaning and joy into their lives.
They forget life is brief. Within the palms of their hands they hold the most precious of all gifts, the lives that have been bestowed them.
Yet life is like pure mountain spring water in one's cupped hands. It will soon seep between one's fingers, forever lost or one can drink heartily of life now, savoring each drop, and being thankful for this incredible and unique gift.
