We think of life stretching on endlessly before us and it tires us.
But life does not come to us that way.
It comes one day at a time.
It is a blessed secret, this of living by the day.
Anyone can carry his burden however heavy, till nightfall.
We can live sweetly, patiently, till the sun goes down.
And this is all that life ever means to us.
Do today’s duties, and tomorrow will take care of itself.
-Aunt Maria, Indiana, January 1933
