A day is a perfect piece of time
to live a life,
to plant a seed,
to watch the sun go by.
A day starts early, work to do,
beneath a brand-new sky.
A day brings hope and kindness, too...
a day is all its own.
You can make a wish,
and start again,
you can find your way back home.
Every bird and every tree and every living thing loves the promise in a day,
loves what it can bring.
There is a faith in the morningtime,
there is belief in noon.
Evening will come whispering and shine a bright round moon.
A day can change just everything, given half a chance.
Rain could show up at your door and teach you how to dance.
The past is sailing off to sea, the future's fast asleep.
A day is all you have to be,
it's all you get to keep.
Underneath that great big sky the earth is all a-spin.
This day will soon be over and it won't come back again.
So live it well, make it count, fill it up with you.
The day's all yours, it's waiting now...
See what you can do.

I just had to share the words from my current Children's book obsession All In A Day. It's so lovely.
The story is available via Chapters on my left sidebar.
All commish goes to Cops for Kids this month so shop away for a good cause.
Hope you enjoyed this little story-time. Back to work for me while I can...it's gorgeous out and we are taking the boys to the beach after school.
