This Gift of Time…

As we are driving away into spring break, I’m wondering about this time we’ve been gifted… I’m wondering if this much anticipated week will live up to it’s promise of time.

Will we have time to rest enough, relax enough, reflect enough?

Will there be time to reconnect with family, friends, ourselves?

Will we make time to get lost in a story that we’re reading, writing?

Will we take time to notice the outside world – the feel of the warmer sun, the smell of the air, the sights we’ve been away from all winter, the sound of spring’s awakening?

Will we find time to accomplish the tasks we’ve put off for too long?

Will we escape from time just enough to have a new adventure?

And, as each moment of each day of this week passes, will we remember that this gift of time is precious, that this gift of time is only given once?

  1. I hope to keep that in mind over our break (which doesn’t start until next week). 🙂 I’ve already made my list, but that list didn’t include all the other things that will pop up. 🙂 Enjoy your break!!!!

  2. A thoughtful question … spring break just began and already I feel that the time will fly by and I won’t get all that I hope to get done. But you know what? That’s okay …. it’s about slowing down life and just being without the rush of life rushing us by! Enjoy!!!

    Enjoy each moment as it comes. Time is so precious to each of us and yet there are days that we just fritter it away without a thought. Have a great spring break and be sure to take some time for yourself.
