Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can’t buy more hours. Scientists can’t invent new minutes. And you can’t save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you’ve wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow. – Denis Waitely

I am grateful for the time that I have everyday. Everyday, I get to spend hours upon hours with my kids. Everyday my kids get to spend time with their Dad. Everyday I get to see and hold my husband. It is a luxury that I am truly happy to have.

This morning my husband forgot something on his way to work and didn’t catch his train. So I had the opportunity to take him to work. I could have been annoyed at the sudden addition of another hour in the car, but instead I decided that it was going to be another half hour of time spent talking to my husband instead (and a half hour of just me and my youngest). Time well spent. Not time wasted.
