A friend of mine  opened his wife's underwear drawer
and picked up a silk paper wrapped package:

"This, -
he said -  isn't any ordinary package."
He unwrapped the box and stared  at both the silk paper
and the box.

"She got this the  first time we went to New York , 8
or 9 years ago.  She has never put it on! ,  was saving it for a
special occasion. Well, I guess this is it. He got near the bed and
placed the gift box next to the other clothing he was taking to the
funeral house, his wife had just died. He turned to me and said:

"Never  save something for a special occasion. Every
day in your life is a special  occasion".

I  still think those words changed my life.

Now  I read more and clean less.

I  sit on the porch without worrying about anything.

I  spend more time with my family, and less at  work.

I  understood that life should be a source of
experience to be lived up to, not  survived through. I no longer keep
anything. I use crystal  glasses every day.. I'll wear new clothes to
go to the supermarket, if i feel  like it.

I  don't save my special perfume for special occasions,
I use it whenever I want  to. The words "Someday..." and "One Day..."
are fading  away from my dictionary. If it's worth seeing, listening
or doing, I want to  see, listen  or  do it now. I don't know what my
friend's wife would have done if she knew she  wouldn't be there the
next morning, this nobody can tell. I think she might  have
called her relatives and closest friends.
She might call old friends  to make peace  over  past
quarrels. I'd like to think she would go out for Chinese, her favorite
food. It's these small things that I would regret not doing, if I knew
my time  had come.

I  would regret it, because I would no longer see the
friends I would meet,  letters... that I wanted to write

"One  of these days".

I  would regret and feel sad, because I didn't say to
my brother and  sisters,  son  and  daughters,  not  times  enough  at
least, how  much I  love them.
Now,  ! I try not to delay, postpone or keep anything
that could bring laughter and  joy into our lives..
And, on each morning, I say to myself that this could
be a special day..

Each  day, each hour, each minute, is  special.

If  you got this, it's because someone cares for you
and because, probably,  there's someone you care about.

If  you're too busy to send this out to other people
and you say to yourself that  you will
send it "One  of these days",  remember that  "One  day"
is  far away... or might never come...
No  matter if you're superstitious or not, spend some
time reading it.
It  holds useful messages for the soul.

Don't  keep this message.
