Time is on my mind. Time is relative to each person. We all have 24 hours every day. Time passes quickly for some, but slowly for others.
This family is on my mind a lot. I wonder how time is passing for them? Is it going too quickly as they lose their precious son to an unforgiving disease? Is time passing slowly because they want to savor every moment, to permanently etch a word or touch in their minds?
The holidays are over, and life is ho-hum here. I guess I am grateful; excitement doesn't always translate to good things. I am having a hard time finding things to write. I am looking forward to the end of February.
Buzz and Puff are almost halfway through their nine week track at school. How is that possible? Before I know it, they will be off for three weeks.
Time is scary! Time whirs by, leaving everything in a blur. I find myself dazed, contemplating how much time has passed; how my children have grown; how my baby is almost five-years-old.
Time is confusing! No wonder Einstein spent so much effort studying time.
Time drags when I try to control my food intake. It moves in slow motion when I want to lose weight. Every day is arduous when you are avoiding that brownie; and yet when I look back at "target weight dates", I realize how much time I have wasted. I should be ahead in the game, so why am I still trying to catch up?
Time is a precious commodity. It is perishable. You can't hoard time! Time can't be collected and saved to use when you need it later.
Time is a friend. Time is a enemy. I have a responsibility on how I use that time. Do I call time my friend or do I call time my enemy?
Time stops for no man or woman, even the most powerful person can't control it.
Time winds down for all, some faster than others. The clock is slowing for a little boy, his heart beats slower every day. Too soon the clock will permanently stop for Mitchell. He will move on, and time will no longer control this child.
Time is a gift...every day.....every hour.....every minute.....every second. How will I choose to use that gift?
