A friend recently gave us a children's book titled "The Three Questions" based on a story by Leo Tolstoy.   Through serving others, the book's main character learns about compassion and living in the moment.  In the end he is told...

"Remember then that there is only one important time, and that time is now.  The most important one is always the one you are with.  And the most important thing is to do good for the one who is standing at your side."

Inside the front cover, my friend inscribed, "For Allegra, whose time is now."


  1. What a good message and reminder.

    Beautiful Allegra is looking older and wide-eyed!

  2. That would be a great saying to post on the mirror every morning before the stresses of the day kicks in. Beautiful.
