Time

I've been hanging on to this until it seemed appropriate to post. With my drastic life changes over the last couple of weeks and the discovery of all kinds of things that I didn't want to find out, now is the time.

To realize the value of a sibling, ask someone who doesn't have one.

To realize the value of ten years, ask a newly divorced couple.

To realize the value of four years, ask a graduate.

To realize the value of one year, ask a student who has failed a final exam.

To realize the value of nine months, ask a mother who gave birth to a stillborn.

To realize the value of six months, ask a soldier deployed into a combat zone.

To realize the value of one month, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of one week, ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of one minute, ask a person who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realize the value of one-second, ask a person who has survived an accident.

Time waits for no one. Treasure every moment you have. You will treasure it even more when you can share it with someone special.

To realize the value of a friend or family member: LOSE ONE.

Remember...hold on tight to the ones you love.
