The wondrous cliche

Today is a gift.

The four words you read, might have come across to your mind as just words. Clichéd words. Preachy words. Flowery words. And you might forget them the moment you step out of this blog.

But some ordinary day you will mysteriously be touched by this simple 4-worded message somehow, through the voice and the words of a person who loves you, or that of a stranger, or the sight of the rising sun one morning, or a sweet surprise hidden in a phone call or behind the door or under your pillow. A sign of love whose existence you had overseen.

And on that ordinary day, from that particular moment when you realise the worth of ‘today’ as a gift, the gift is yours.

The day you spend gratefully will always be followed by a night you shall sleep through like a child.
