Such a pleasant day and evening should have ended with a restful night and happy dreams, but it didn't.
The service on Christmas Eve day was, of course, about Jesus.
Some day maybe I will find someone like Alex.
She had been lying around all day catching up on her sleep while Carmen worked on her bedroom.
It was the middle of the day, and Alex never took a nap.
Lisa came home from the hospital the day before the funeral and Connie insisted on staying with her for a while.
As the garage door lifted, sunlight reflected off the polish she and her siblings had applied that last day of their lives.
His day had already been disrupted enough.
Sure, that sounded possible... if he didn't spend every day at the barn.
By the next day she was ready to resume her normal activities, but Sarah insisted it was Saturday and she should take some time to enjoy herself.
Like her parents, Mr. & Mrs. Marsh had the kind of marriage she would like to have some day – happy.
Since they were scheduled to be too late for supper that day, it was a good excuse to eat out together.
One day when they were sitting on the porch steps together, Brandon proposed a solution.
Would it be such an imposition to take just one day off to go see my parents?
She felt responsible for the fact that Brandon didn't have that last day with his father.
The day was getting hot and it took too much energy to argue.
The day isn't getting any longer.
Each day they changed positions in line so that no one ate the dust from all the wagons every day.
He simply went into town one day and never returned.
There had been an instant bond between them from the day they met.
They are invaluable to make flags flutter on a still day, when there is no wind.
All people need rest, even if they are made of wood, and as there is no night here they select a certain time of the day in which to sleep or doze.
We hope to grow to be dragons some day, but just now we're only dragonettes.
If I remember rightly, we were sixty-six years old the day before yesterday.
I'll race the miserable wooden donkey any day in the week! cried the cab-horse.
"It is the day of the Lord." said one.
"This may be the last great day," he said.
One day he was lying under a tree, thinking of his misfortunes.
It was midsummer, and the day was very hot.
He might be seen every day with a bag of charcoal on his back, carrying it to some of his customers.
In fact, it's likelier that kids of that day were forbidden by proper parents from hanging out at the Globe Theater.
But the truth is that almost all furniture back in the day was cheaply made junk and only a very few high-quality pieces survived.
Today, there are modern-day Da Vincis living in parts of the world where just surviving is a full-time occupation, powerless to develop the gifts they could offer the wider world.
To understand the distinction between wisdom and knowledge, consider the story of King Croesus, who ruled Lydia (near present-day Turkey) around 550 B.C. In the ancient world, different cities or regions would have an oracle to whom people could go and ask a question.
So he commissioned seven emissaries to go out to seven certain oracles around the world and on a predetermined day, let's say July 12, at a predetermined time, say 3:00 p.m.
They tell me I walked the day I was a year old.
If we have once seen, "the day is ours, and what the day has shown."
One day some gentlemen called on my mother, and I felt the shutting of the front door and other sounds that indicated their arrival.
In those days a little coloured girl, Martha Washington, the child of our cook, and Belle, an old setter, and a great hunter in her day, were my constant companions.
One big gobbler snatched a tomato from me one day and ran away with it.
See how he cowers and sneaks, how vaguely all the day he fears, not being immortal nor divine, but the slave and prisoner of his own opinion of himself, a fame won by his own deeds.
Think, also, of the ladies of the land weaving toilet cushions against the last day, not to betray too green an interest in their fates!
One farmer says to me, "You cannot live on vegetable food solely, for it furnishes nothing to make bones with"; and so he religiously devotes a part of his day to supplying his system with the raw material of bones; walking all the while he talks behind his oxen, which, with vegetable-made bones, jerk him and his lumbering plow along in spite of every obstacle.
How vigilant we are! determined not to live by faith if we can avoid it; all the day long on the alert, at night we unwillingly say our prayers and commit ourselves to uncertainties.
It would be some advantage to live a primitive and frontier life, though in the midst of an outward civilization, if only to learn what are the gross necessaries of life and what methods have been taken to obtain them; or even to look over the old day-books of the merchants, to see what it was that men most commonly bought at the stores, what they stored, that is, what are the grossest groceries.
The other day at the Apraksins' I heard a lady asking, 'Is that the famous Prince Andrew?'
"I am very, very grateful to you, mon cher," or "ma chere"--he called everyone without exception and without the slightest variation in his tone, "my dear," whether they were above or below him in rank--"I thank you for myself and for our two dear ones whose name day we are keeping.
The conversation was on the chief topic of the day: the illness of the wealthy and celebrated beau of Catherine's day, Count Bezukhov, and about his illegitimate son Pierre, the one who had behaved so improperly at Anna Pavlovna's reception.
I wish you many happy returns of your name day, said the visitor.
She seemed that day to be more than ever kind and affectionate to everyone.
