Enjoy each moment

Ray’s Daily

“Every moment in our lives is a miracle we should enjoy instead of ignoring.”

Yoko Ono

It will soon be November. October has been pretty good for me. I will continue to appreciate the moments left by paying attention to the little things that mean so much.

When Is That Golden Moment?

When the scale tells me I’ve not gained a pound

When my glasses or phone or keys have been found,

When the cop pulls me over but spares me the ticket

When my ice cream cone drips and I get to lick it,

When I read the obituaries and don’t know a soul,

When the car just ahead of me pays for my toll,

When my pants can fit without sucking my gut in

When I’m on the dance floor and a man asks to cut in,

When it’s time for a movie and I get to choose it,

When I cut out the coupon and remember to use it.

Everyone understands the worth

Of a big celebration: a marriage, a birth

But moments of joy, too many to mention

Brighten each day, when we just pay attention.

By Eileen Hession


“If you’re always racing to the next moment, what happens to the one you’re in? Slow down and enjoy the moment you’re in and live your life to the fullest.”

Nanette Mathews

A woman tells her friend, “My husband is an angel.”

Her friend replies, “You’re lucky, mine is still alive.”


The doctor came out of the operating room to talk with the man’s wife.  “I don’t like the looks of your husband,” he said.  “Neither do I,” said the wife, “but he’s not home much, and he’s great with the kids.”


“Because we don’t think about future generations, they will never forget us.”

Henrik Tikkanen


Dilbert’s Words Of Wisdom

1. I can please only one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow, isn’t looking good either.

2. I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make as they go flying by.

3. Am I getting smart with you? How would you know?

4. I’d explain it to you, but your brain would explode.

5. Someday we’ll look back on all this and plow into a parked car.

6. There are very few personal problems that cannot be solved through a suitable application of high explosives.

7. Tell me what you need, and I’ll tell you how to get along without it.

8. Accept that some days you’re the pigeon, and some days you’re the statue.

9. Needing someone is like needing a parachute. If he isn’t there the first time you need him, chances are you won’t be needing him again.

10. I don’t have an attitude problem. You have a perception problem.

11. Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, “Where the heck is the ceiling?!”

12. My Reality Check bounced.

13. On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger on the escape key.

14. I don’t suffer from stress. I’m a carrier.

15. You’re slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter.


“The journey is never-ending. There’s always gonna be growth, improvement, adversity; you just gotta take it all in and do what’s right, continue to grow, continue to live in the moment.”

Antonio Brown
