There is Time . . .

"Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience". 
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

 There is time – and that is often the hardest thing for me to acknowledge. There is time today.

Unfortunately, I am often too worried about returning on time, finishing on time, running out of time that 
I forget it is time to take time. 

Time to walk slower – to match my gait to the leisurely pace of those whose path crosses mine.

To enjoy the sunlight . . .

and the sound of the breeze rustling through the trees.

When it appears there is no more time, 
that I have only a few days and then only a few hours, 
and finally only a few minutes – 
I need to remember there is still time.

There is always enough time if I remember that the time is now.

“Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.”  - Will Rogers
