Finish Each Day


Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

    I LOVE the beautiful photo, and the Emerson quote is exactly what I needed to read tonight!

    Thank you as always!

  2. Thank you, Lynn.


  3. Nice composition. It reminds me of Anne of Green Gables’ “Tomorrow is a fresh day with no mistakes in it.” :)

  4. Pink,

    That’d be a good thing to put on a bathroom mirror, to read while brushing teeth.

  5. Or hand embroider and frame! {Gosh, I love needlework! :D}
