Books are a big part of our house. And, a constant source of entertainment and bonding time. One of Beckett’s greatest joys is sitting down with a new book from the library and thumbing through the pages. I recently found this wonderful book during our last stop at the library. It’s called All In A Day by Cynthia Rylant and it’s truly special.
It’s the perfect read after a trying day with an obstinate toddler. Or, after hitting dead-ends with this project and beekeeping. It will remind you how fast your little ones grow up and how every day is a new day. A chance to start over. The words are beautiful and the artwork is spectacular. Check it out…
All In A Day by Cynthia RylantA day is a perfect piece of time to live a life, to plant a seed, to watch the sun go by. ~
A day starts early, work to do, beneath a brand-new sky. ~
A day brings hope and kindess, too… a day is all its own. ~
You can make a wish, and start again, you can find your way back home. ~
Every bird and every tree and every living thing loves the promise in a day, loves what it can bring. ~
There is a faith in morningtime, there is a belief in noon. Evening will come whispering and shine a bright round moon. ~
A day can change just everything, given half a chance. Rain could show up at your door and teach you how to dance. ~
The past is sailing off to sea, the future’s fast asleep. A day is all you have to be, it’s all you get to keep. ~
Underneath that great big sky the earth is all a-spin. This day will soon be over and it won’t come back again. ~
So live it well, make it count, fill it up with you. The day’s all yours, it’s waiting now… See what you can do.
