24 hours is not enough time in the day. Chores, errands, bill paying. School, soccer practice, homework. Cooking, cleaning, shopping. Exercise, grooming, health care. Work, conferences, phone calls.
Ever get to the end of a long day, and think, “Whew. Made it”? Morning to night our days are filled with activities and responsibilities. The days feel long.
But time is a double edged sword. Blink, and a week has gone by. Blink, and half the year is gone. Blink, and your children are grown and your hair is gray.
The years are made up of our days. So, we must make each day the kind of day we want our lives to be like. We must strive to do the things we know we should do, say the words we know we should say, and make the connections we know we should make.
Give, because the days are long, but the years are short.
Fill up your days with acts of generosity, and you will have lived a generous life. Keep waiting for a better time to give, and you may live to regret that your days were long but short on life.
