Take notice of something special you see

Lisa Beamer on Good Morning America - If you remember,      
she's the wife of Todd Beamer who said 'Let's Roll!' and 
helped take down the plane over Pennsylvania that was 
heading for Washington, DC back on 9/11. 
She said it's the little things that she misses most about 
Todd, such as hearing the garage door open as he came 
Home, and her children running to meet him. 

Lisa recalled this story: "I had a very special teacher in 
high school many years ago whose husband died suddenly 
of a heart attack. About a week after his death, she shared 
some of her insight with a classroom of students. As the 
late afternoon sunlight came streaming in through the 
classroom windows and the class was nearly over, she 
moved a few things a   side on the edge of her desk and       
sat down there. 
With a gentle look of reflection on her face, she paused 
and said, 'Class is over, I would like to share with all of you, 
a thought that is unrelated to class, but which I feel is very 
important. Each of us is put here on earth to learn, share, 
love, appreciate and give of ourselves. None of us knows 
when this fantastic experience will end. 
It can be taken away at any moment. 
Perhaps this is God's way of telling us that we must make 
the most out of every single day. Her eyes, beginning to 
water, she went on, 'So I would like you all to make me 
a promise. From now on, on your way to school, or on 
your way home, find something beautiful to notice. 
It doesn't have to be something you see, it could be a 
scent, perhaps of freshly baked bread wafting out of 
someone's house, or it could be the sound of the breeze 
slightly rustling the leaves in the trees, or the way the 
morning light catches one autumn leaf as it falls gently 
to the ground. Please look for these things, and cherish 
them. For, although it may sound trite to some, these 
things are the "stuff" of life. The little things we are put 
here on earth to enjoy. The things we often take for 
The class was completely quiet. We all picked up our 
books and filed out of the room silently. That afternoon, 
I noticed more things on my way home from school than 
I had that whole semester. Every once in a while, I think 
of that teacher and remember what an impression she 
made on all of us, and I try to appreciate all of those 
things that sometimes we all overlook. 
Take notice of something special you see on your lunch 
hour today. Go barefoot. Or walk on the beach at sunset. 
Stop off on the way home tonight to get a double dip ice 
cream cone. For as we get older, it is not the things we 
did that we often regret, but the things we didn't do. 
If you like this, please pass it on to a friend, 
If not just delete it and go on with your life! 
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, 
but by the moments that take our breath away."
