Running Out of Time? You’re Not Alone.


We don’t need a lot of reminders that time passes quickly (or maybe we do).  We can see how it changes before us every day: a baby who suddenly is a year old, children growing up and starting high school or college, a friend’s 40th birthday, or a great uncle’s retirement party. Stop and enjoy what you are doing right now. Savor it, if only for the moment. And perhaps listen to what others have said about time…
