This year, however a month late, I placed a desk calendar on my nightstand. When I wake up in the morning, I like being reminded of the gift of and responsibility over another 24 hours. Before I sleep at night, it is fitting to say thanks for the day just spent, with all its "prayers, work, joys, and sufferings". The calendar is a simple reminder of a tremendous gift.
My favorite things in life don't cost any money. It's really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.
