TIME, I have mixed emotions about you. Without you, we wouldn’t have opportunities to grow mentally, physically, & spiritually. Without you we wouldn’t have opportunities to experience life and love. However, you seem to pass quickly....way too quickly! I see the babies I was blessed with growing up and maturing before my eyes. TIME, you are bitter sweet. My daughters were meant to grow and one day leave and you are the conduit for that transition; but, it seems to be happening faster than I would like. Maybe I blame you when I should blame myself instead. Am I taking every opportunity to make the best of every hour and every day, or am I easily distracted by things that really don’t matter?
TIME, keep reminding me that you can be my friend, if I chose to take full advantage of the opportunities you give me. Remind me to slow down and cherish every moment. Remind me to never leave anything unsaid. Remind me to put my phone down more (unless it’s to take a photo 😉) and to always be present. Remind my children to seize opportunities placed before them in the midst of this school year and to be a light to others. We never know what the student sitting beside us is struggling with or is dealing with at home. We never know what our teachers are going through at home or with their peers. So, TIME, even though I still have mixed emotions about you, I will chose to treat you with respect because I know you will not slow down, but maybe I can.
