The most valuable commodity ever known to mankind.
Time can be squandered. Wasted.
Time can be valued. Cherished.
A commonality all humans possess.
A singular guiding principle that unites us.
An undeniable reality.
We are all driven by time.
Time to work.
Time to commute.
Time to meet a deadline.
Time to get to school.
Time for hockey.
Time for dance.
Time for dinner.
Time to pray.
Time for bed.
We pray that we are blessed with time to do it all over again tomorrow.
The reality however, is that we are all running out of time.
Time is often taken for granted.
They say the days are long and the years go by fast.
I can attest to this. I cannot believe the speed at which my children are growing. In the blink of an eye, they will be in high school, then university, then married, then I will hopefully be blessed with grandchildren (God willing).
They are growing at the speed of light.
Time is zooming by, I can’t catch my breath.
I want to stop time.
Cuddle my babies a little longer.
Travel a little further.
Love a little longer, a little deeper.
Make a difference; leave my footprint on this world.
Savour the time you have been given.
It is a blessing.
Do not squander it.
For in the blink of an eye, it will all be over.
