This is Peanut Butter Brickle. I really wonder where all the time goes in a day. One minute you are trying to sleep more and not get out of bed because you’re comfortable.
Then. The day goes by and you wonder what in the world happened and if you spent the time you had wisely. What’s wise time in your opinion?
When Girl Person used to visit her grandparents, her Pappy would always ask, “what’s the hurry!” You see, he had spent his life hurrying to work. Hurrying to get married. Hurrying to have a family. Hurrying to speed thru the check marks of life.
And he didn’t want Girl Person to do the same. But she didn’t hear him. She heard his voice. But she didn’t hear the meaning.
Because what she was hurrying back to was work or making dinner. What she was hurrying back to was cleaning the house. Or something else. And all those things and something else’s? She can’t even remember. But she remembers that she wishes she would have a day of time back to sit and not hurry with Pappy.
A lot of things we learn after the fact. When it’s too late. That’s true. But can we apply that knowledge to something else in our life? Can we learn from our past and gain perspective? I bet you can.
If there is one thing I know, that is I’m handsome.
If there’s another thing I know, there is no reason ever to hurry away from time with the ones we won’t be with forever. Remember to stop watching your watch and watch what’s important. There’s no time limit on that.
