Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

It does seem even in retirement that nearly every day holds a lesson to be learned..Many times these lessons may come with a high price to be paid.. With the following thoughts our lives could be much easier and joyful.
There are two days in every week that we should not worry about, two days that should kept free from fear and apprehension.
One is yesterday, with it's mistakes and cares and it's faults and blunders, it's aches and pains. Yesterday has passed, forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday. We cannot undo a single act preformed, nor can we erase a single word we have said... Yesterday is gone..
The other day we shouldn't worry about is tomorrow, with it's impossible adversaries, it burden, it's hopeful promises and it poor performance.. Tomorrow is beyond our control.
Tomorrows sun will rise either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise. And until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is not yet born.
This leaves only one day... TODAY... Any person can fight battles of just one day... It is only when we add the burdens of yesterday and tomorrow that we break down.. It is the experience of today that drives people mad.. it is the remorse of bitterness for something which happened yesterday and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.....
