The Present is a Gift...

Good morning, it is the first day of March 2009. A beautiful day indeed here in Ampang Jaya. To liven up this new day in March let me begin with the posting of a reply that I did to an anonymous poster in my last posting for February 2009. She had good words on my kind of blogging and I thanks her for that. On her return visit/comment on the same subject I replied philosophically to her comment. Below is that two cents worth of thoughts:-

" Anonymous[1:38AM], Yvonne, A very good morning to you. Whether it is a raining day like now in Ampang Jaya or the sun shining bright, it is still a good day to me. We woke up breathing and that is already a good sign.

We start living yet another day, that is today. Today is the future of yesterday, it is the present. The present is a gift to us to live for another day, for the past has gone forever. We have been there and today is yesterday future and tomorrow is the future. It is the present that is important to us. It is a gift so makes hays while the sun shines for the the present would be with us only but for a mere seconds and then it became the past. That is why I kept telling that we must enjoy that very moment in time, the present. And Yvonne, the present is a gift and we all love Gifts. Accept the gift with all your heart and enjoy it for the present is but a few second with us and soon it would be the past. So do think positive and live lives by the day, the minutes, the seconds for we would not go that path again.

I am into the seventies and happy that I have enjoyed life all throughtout that jouney of life and continue to do so now. Sure there are hic up along the ways, but what is life if there are no the up and down. It is that varieties that made living so very wonderful. They say the varieties is the spices of life, true and do made it as colorful as ever and I am sure you would enjoy the day.

Yvonne do live in the present. It is a gift.

Thanks for the return visit and the kind words. Have a nice day. "

Take care.

Greetings to you Pak Idrus.

Thank you very much for posting this entry. Gosh..(*blushing right now*). You know, each time when I visit you over here, although I didn't post any comments until recently..I felt great! Sometimes, words are simply hard to express my feelings of being lost but reading your entries gave me lots of happiness and hope. Totally agreed with the ups and downs in life, and I can only sum them up as a phase in life we have to go through. And I will go through them positively. Thank-you Pak Idrus, for your encouragement. I wish you good health and happiness ;-)

Kind regards,

Anonymous[1:50AM], Yvonne, thanks for the visit and the kind words on this posting. I am glad that you enjoy it.

In blogging I get my wish at this period of my life to share my thoughts with the world, hoping that in a small way it would help others to enjoy life that I know would be wonderful if only we knew that life is like that.

That path that one takes would be different but it is us that had to learn along the way of the how to enjoy life, for we only go that path only once on that journey of life. So do enjoy that journey as you go along.

I am indeed glad that you enjoy my thoughts and I hope that you would continue to have a colorful life as well.

Have a nice day and take care.
