> I had a very special teacher in high school many years ago whose husband
> unexpectedly died suddenly of a heart attack. About a week after his
> death, she shared some of her insight with a classroom of students. As
> the late afternoon sunlight came streaming in through the classroom
> windows and the class was
> nearly over, she moved a few things
> aside on the edge of her desk and sat down there. With a gentle look of
> reflection on her face, she paused and said, "Before class is over, I
> would like to share with all of you a thought that is unrelated to
> class, but which I feel is very important.
> Each of us is put here on earth to learn, share, love, appreciate and
> give of ourselves. None of us knows when this fantastic experience will
> end.
> It can be taken away at any moment. Perhaps this is God's way of telling
> us that we must make the most out of every single day." Her eyes
> beginning to water, she went on, "So I would like you all to make me a
> promise. From now on, on your way to school, or on your way home, find
> something beautiful to notice. It doesn't have to be something you see -
> it could be a scent-perhaps of freshly baked bread wafting out of
> someone's house, or it could be the sound of the breeze slightly
> rustling the leaves in the trees, or the way the morning light catches
> one autumn leaf as it falls gently to the ground. Please look for these
> things, and cherish them. For, although it may sound trite to some,
> these things are the stuff" of life. The little things we are put here
> on earth to enjoy. The things we often take for granted. We must make it
> important to notice them, for at any time... it can all be taken away."
> The class was completely quiet. We all picked up our books and filed out
> of the room silently. That afternoon, I noticed more things on my way
> home from school than I had that whole semester. Every once in a while,
> I think of that teacher and remember what an impression she made on all
> of us, and I try to appreciate all of those things that sometimes we all
> overlook.
> Take notice of something special you see on your lunch hour today. Go
> barefoot. Or walk on the beach at sunset. Stop off on the way home
> tonight to get a double-dip ice cream cone. For as we get older, it is
> not the things we did that we often regret, but the things we didn't do.
> If you like this, please pass it on to a friend.
