I had never seen the old movie called, The LAST TIME I SAW PARIS with Vann Johnson and Elizabeth Taylor, Donna Read, etc. I liked one quote in the movie:
"....a life time full of last days." It reminds me of part of an old prayer: "Order this day all my communications according to thy wisdom, and to the gain of mutual good. Forbid that I should not be profited or made profitable. May I speak each word as if my last word, and walk each step as my final one. If my life should end today, let this be my best day."
I think sometimes of cancer patients or others who have survived deadly illnesses--how it makes you appreciate all of the little things (as well as the big) in each day ---ie---to be able to see and feel the warm sunshine, to enjoy the little birds at the feeder, to taste a good cup of coffee, to see and talk to your loved ones, to feel the warmth of human touch, to hear the sound of people talking and praying, etc.
