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?
