Five Things You Cannot Recover

I have been pondering some words of wisdom that a friend shared with me today.

There are 5 things you cannot recover in life:

The Stone...after it is thrown,
The Word...after it is said,
The Occasion...after it is missed,
The Time...after it is gone,
The Person...after they die.

I don't know where she got it from but it touched my thoughts today.
(I googled to try to find a credit but couldn't decipher the original author)
As I get older I think I am getting a handle on the last three,
but dear Lord, grant me the patience to learn the first two.


  1. Hey Tanya, what a wonderful saying.

    Lots to think about.

    Will think twice next time I'm going to throw a stone or words..........

  2. Tanya! Your profile photo looks much younger than the one of you in this post!. :-D

  3. I have a old fashioned cross stitch sampler that says something similar

    three things there are that will never come back : the arrow shot forth on its destined track, the appointed hour that could not wait and the helpful word that was spoken too late.

    Unfortunately no author noted either. all great words of wisdom though

  4. Where did you get my photo from?

  5. Oh Tania - noice picture : o )

  6. Thanks for commenting on my blog.....glad to see you are in Launceston too! Cathy

  7. Hey Tanya,
    Oh my that pic is a scream, but those 5 points are so true. It's wise to ponder over them. Thanks for sharing them, gives me a lot to think about.
