The dizzying conversation with the three year old went something like this,
"What is today, Mom?"
Today is Wednesday, Minnie.
"What is tomorrow?"
"Tomorrow is Thursday?"
"What is after that?"
"What is before today?"
"I know, Maaaahhm. What is yesterday?"
Yesterday was Tuesday.
She was just about finished with the conversation when she said, "And today is today, so I better go get dressed for dancing school," and walked out of the room.
Yes. Today is today.
Today is not yesterday or tomorrow. Today is not what you didn't get finished yesterday or what you're gearing up for tomorrow. It's not last week when you yelled about candy corn pumpkins or ate too many carbs. It's not next month when you might be 5 pounds thinner or caught up on all the Fall yard work.
Today is today. You are this. Today. You are here. Today. This day. So you'd better go get dressed for today so you'll be ready. Because there will never be another day like today.
