Precious years, how fast they go...

Time is such a priceless asset these days and to many there's simply never enough of it to complete that which we must, want to or need to. Life has become seemingly so fast paced that it almost always seems that we're racing against time to get things done.
It's when we remember someone dear that we've lost in our lives that we realise just how precious time is, and how those years gone by, as long as they may be, seem like only just yesterday.
Everyday becomes so priceless, yet somehow we forget because we are so caught up in our rat-race world of monotony and making a living...we take life for granted.

We need to value the time we have NOW, because this is the time in years to come that we would look back on and probably have woulda's, coulda's or shoulda's ... and there's simply no time for that.


What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

                                                                William Henry Davies

May time be always on your side, through all the rush and demands of life...and don't let life pass you by in the midst of all it's ride!!

Hold dear to those near and loved, and make every moment count.
