If you are not counting your days, you should. The Bible says,
"Teach us to number our days aright that we may gain a heart of wisdom." (Psalm 90:12)It also says,
"As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more." (Psalm 103:15-16)
If you are breathing, thank God for another day, realize that it is a gift, and make the most of it.

When I was putting her to bed last night Audra said, "That sure was a bad way to end our vacation."
