To realize the true value of time you have to know what it means.+To realize the value of life ask a person with cancer, who’s life is cut short when yours is not.000

To realize the value of a year ask  a person who didn’t make the cut, who worked hard and didn’t achieve.

To realize the value of a month ask a mother who had a premature baby.

To realize the value of a day ask a person who has had a heart attack.

To realize the value of a hour ask the widow who just lost her other half.

To realize the value of a minute ask the person who missed their flight.

To realize the value of a second ask the person who’s life is on the line.

 Treat every day as your last, for as little as you know it may be.

 Treasure every moment you have for it is a gift from above.

And treasure it more because even if you’re not doing something fun or exciting

Your sharing it with someone you love, and someone who loves you.

And remember that no matter what time waits for no one.

Yesterday is history.

Tomorrow is a mystery.

But today is a gift.

The gift of life, which you are lucky to have.
