On time and waste

Man, in his lifetime, will incur so much waste.  Human waste, material waste,toxic waste, energy waste, and a lot of other waste.  Added to that, wasted opportunities, broken and wasted relationships , among others.  But they say, that the worst and most costly kind of waste , is of time, for it is never gained back.  Yes, some wastes can be recycled and regained, but time squandered and lost, will not be recovered.  Even broken relationships, in its opportune time will be mended and healed. " But once a heart is torn apart, i'ts never the same again," the lyrics of a song runs like this. But Love can alter that.  Not with time !

Some people are very conscious with time. When they make appointments, they make sure that they make it on the dot, others even, make it ahead of the appointed time.  To others, sad to say, dont value time. They let time adjust to their whims and caprices, only to realize in the long run , that time is running out for them.  Time, waits for no one.  It is one commodity that can't be bought or controlled.  It controls us. You have to grab it , as it comes, to utilize and use it to the fullest.

Time, is the essence of life. Time well spent and enjoyed, makes life gratifying and heavenly, while time squandered and abused makes life miserable.

The reality of Life

" Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot Heal!" Those were the words written on the card sent to me by a friend.  That
   was five years ago, we were then mourning the passing away of my husband.  Yes, after five years, my children and I
   have moved on and had to face the reality that our loved one is gone.  Sure, it is really painful to lose someone dear, but
   death is no respecter of person, young or old, rich or poor.  But time, has a way of mending hearts. Day by day, year by
   year, slowly,slowly, our aching hearts started to heal.

   Again, last week, a loved one, was put to rest.  He was young, handsome, and comes from a respected family.  He left
   behind a loving wife and children and a budding career.  How could a  promising life such as his,be cut in the bud so
   soon, we could only ask.  Someday, we will know the answer. Meanwhile, his loved ones will miss him so much, but
   surely, slowly, day by day, year by year, their aching hearts will mend and face life anew, with new hopes and dreams.

   Life is precious and short, thats a reality. Dont waste it. Live every minute of it. Be happy and  you will make your loved
   ones happy too!
