So True...

In honor of autumn and life in general, one of my favorite poems by Robert Frost:


NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY

Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold
Her early leaf's a flower
But only so an hour
So leaf subsides to leaf
So Eden sank to grief
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay

----------------------------------

Every time I read this, I think about what is "gold" in my life right now, and try to treasure it more closely.  I realize that Hope won't carry around the same Strawberry Shortcake book forever, or that Jonny won't always want me to cuddle with him at bedtime.....GOLD.....

What's gold in your life right now?
