Today and Tomorrow become Yesterday

Today and Tomorrow

Today and tomorrow are just heartbeats away from becoming yesterday.  We live our lives looking forward to tomorrow, to births and weddings, to vacations and retirements, to birthdays and holidays, to new beginnings and old reunions.  But no sooner do these milestones arrive, than they slip into the past.  They become part of our history.  What we once were looking forward to, we soon find ourselves remembering with longing.  The moments we planned for, turn into treasured memories.

When you are young, your tomorrows are plenty, while your yesterdays are few.

When you grow old, your tomorrows become few, while your yesterdays become plenty.

But as long as you live, you have today.
