The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day on the fly? When you ask: How are you? Do you hear the reply? When the day is done, do you lie in your bed, with the next hundred chores running through your head? You better slow down, don’t dance too fast. Time is short, the music won’t last. Ever told your child we’ll do it tomorrow? And in your haste, not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die, because you never had time, to call and say Hi? You’d better slow down. Don’t dance so fast. Time is short. The music won’t last. When you run so fast to get somewhere, you miss half the fun of getting there. When you worry and hurry through your day, it is like an unopened gift thrown away. Life is not a race. Do take it slower. Hear the music, before the song is over.

  2. Brigitte, on the FB web page, if I hit the SHARE option, it posts only to my personal profile page and doesn’t show up in my news feed or home page. On this site, if I try to post , there is a gray strip @ the bottom that prevents me from clicking the POST option. If I hit the UP arrow on the screen to try to uncover the strip, the image totally disappears. I tried sending you an email @ the address above, but the screen keeps showing me with the old Verizon email address I once had , and no option to change it…and the email won’t go through. You can email me at [email protected] Thanks for any clarification and/ or help.
