Popular Keepers Collection Covers Many Timeless Topics
DEAR ABBY: I am writing about your Keepers booklet, the collection of your most popular essays, poems and letters. I would like to purchase a copy, but first, I have a question. Is there a particular favorite of yours in there? -- BIG FAN IN FORT WAYNE, IND.
DEAR FAN: My Keepers booklet contains 72 column items that readers have told me they had read and reread until they were yellowed with age and falling apart. This booklet was created because of the high volume of requests from my readers for a collection of these items in one easy-to-use booklet. The subjects are diverse, covering a variety of topics, including parenting, children, aging, animals, forgiveness, etc. One poem in particular has always resonated with me. It is titled The Time Is Now, and I find its message both poignant and meaningful. I hope you will agree.
THE TIME IS NOW (Author Unknown)
If you are ever going to love me,
Love me now, while I can know
The sweet and tender feelings

While I am living.
