Have you ever thought about Time? When you are little, time is either too slow or too fast. Summers go too fast and Christmas takes forever to get here and then is gone before you really enjoy it.

As you get older, time is taken for granted. Our pet phrases are "I'll take care of that later, or That's for a special time." We procrastinate enjoying life because if I have more money it will be better. If I have a new car, I can go anywhere. Tomorrow will always be there.

But then we get a gut check. All of a sudden our parents are old and feeble, time is running out for them. We can't go back and do over all the times we weren't there for them. We can't reconnect the phone calls we didn't make.

Time may be on Mick Jagger's side but it is not on ours. Each year seems to fly by faster than the one before. All of a sudden it seems, time has run out. All of the things that seemed so important, that had to be done before we could enjoy life, are not so important.

Spent time with your family, create memories that will outlast time. Live like you are dying should be the catch phrase for everyone. Because from the day we are born, we are dying. We don't know how long our string of life is. Never miss an opportunity to hug your spouse, parents, kids. Don't worry about what other people think. Be kind to one another.
