Translation help: 2 words and 1 phrase

I'd be eternally greatful if somebody could translate these words and this phrase (below). These translations will be titles for a major work (short-stories) I am doing for my last year of Secondary School.

Translation for the word "Adore"

Merriam webster says that the word "adore" as in "I adore my daughter" comes from the Latin word "adorare"

I'm wondering if this is correct, and also if you might be able suggest an authentic looking old type Latin font.

Vocatives

Heu, omnes! I've been kind of embarrassed about this for a while, but I don't feel totally confident that I understand the vocative forms.

"make every day count"

I am trying to find a way to translate this into Latin for someone else, but I am finding it difficult to find a satisfactory way of saying it. Obviously a word for "to count" is not going to carry the same meaning as in the English phrase, unless there is some very apt Latin word which I am unaware of.

Difficulty of the Roman playwrights and Livy
