Spending Quality Time

Today is the birthday of one of my best friends.  Although, like you, I sometimes get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, today I was reminded that there is nothing more important than relationships … relationships with God, family, co-workers and friends.  I believe that life is a journey and that we get to choose where, how and with whom we travel.   Our lives are really the sum of the things we prioritize.  Today, I choose my relationship with my friend, whom I am taking to lunch.  Remember to take time today to express the value of your relationships. 

Following is a message that helps me to keep things in perspective.

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:
