Desiderata – A Beautiful and Meaningful Poem by Max Ehrmann 1927


I wanted to share this poem with you all. It was given to my daughter from her Grama Marlene who passed away in August of 2013. She fought a long battle with cancer and we were blessed to have her in our lives. She would always give my daughter these wonderful poems and other inspirational things. When I read this one, it just really put life into perspective and I realized this is exactly how I want to live my own life. My last living grandparent – my Grama Mary (91-1/2 yrs old) passed away just one week ago. I loved the moments we got to spend alone together and the wisdom she provided me during that time. I will miss her dearly but I will see her again one day. We always say when it is TOO LATE that we wish we would have had more time to spend with those we loved and lost. We have no idea when our time, or someone else’s time may be up, so quit wishing and spend that “MORE TIME” today, tomorrow and the next day. Live your life to the fullest. Be Happy. Love and be loved. Be YOURSELF always.

Good night and Sweet Dreams.
