Time, Relationships and Experience!

A dear friend sent this poem to me the other day. How full of wisdom it is! My perspective on time, health, family and relationships has changed quite a bit, since I have been so sick for the past 5 months. I am looking at spending quality time with the people and doing the things I love to do...when I do feel good.
 I realize that many times I have given energy or time to things... that are not as valuable as other things. I am learning to pay attention to where I spend my time, energy and effort. I am trying to understand what it is I am suppose to learn from this experience. This poem, reminded me of some of these things.
Hope it touches you too.
Good night dear friends!
( My daughter Lauren just graduated from college, here she is with her proud Big Brother. So grateful we all had the time to go and celebrate that big accomplishment with her. )

To realize
The value of a sister/brother
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 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:


Hold on tight to the ones you love!!!!
