Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Nearly 15 years ago, whilst living in Canada, our family experienced a crisis so devastating it's hard to contemplate all these years later how we were able to survive it. But survive it and triumph we did. Such triumph would not have been possible had it not been for the help of some very kind and loving people in our life. I am grateful for every one of them...from school counselors and teachers...to health workers...to friends and family.

Sometime within the truly nightmarish years of the late 90's into the early 2000's, I received a letter from my Canadian friend, Monica. It contained this poem. I keep it on my fridge in the dye studio, where I often read it. Perhaps it will bring you comfort, as it did for me...and most definitely, still does.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

There are two days in every week that we should not worry about,
two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is Yesterday, with all its mistakes and cares,
its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.
Yesterday has passed, forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday.
We cannot undo a single act we performed.
Nor can we erase a single word we said - yesterday is gone!

The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow,
with all its impossible adversities,
its burden,

its hopeful promise and its poor performance.
Tomorrow is beyond our control.

Tomorrow's sun will rise either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds - but it will rise.
And until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow,

for it is yet unborn.

This leaves only one day - Today.
Any person can fight the battle of just one day.
It is when we add the burdens of yesterday and tomorrow that we break down.

It is not the experience of today that drives people mad -
it is the remorse of bitterness for something which happened yesterday,
and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.


Let us, therefore, live but one day at a time!

  4. Jeannine, thanks for sharing, it's beautiful and inspirational! The last few years I have had some family members going through a rough time. They repeatedly had one hard time after the other. Any words of comfort I offered seemed so empty. I will keep this if ever I need it for someone else or myself. Hopefully, it will stay tucked in my drawer, never to be needed!
