The sun coming up at the start of a new day was designed to bring hope that we can have a second chance. Not simply a second chance to get it right, it's much bigger than making up for errors we've made. Each new day offers us all a second chance to love deeper, to give of ourselves more and the chance to forgive those that have wounded us.
If you woke up today and knew it was possibly the last new dawn you would see, would you really squander that time trying to make up for mistakes? I know I wouldn't. I would make every attempt to express my love to those who matter most to me, I would want to free my friends and family from my unforgiveness and let them know that they are the most precious thing to me in this life.
I realized this morning that today really is my last dawn, unless I am so privileged to wake again tomorrow. But tomorrow is not guaranteed, because for all I know today is the only day I have left. This is it. I have to go now. There is so much love to be given on this brand new day.
