Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of. Benjamin Franklin
I’m trying to use my time wisely, or at least as wisely as I can, but I still get to the end of the day and wonder where the time went. I’ve got a two-year-old and a four-month-old, so a good portion of my day is spent feeding one or the other and changing diapers on one or the other, but there must be time in the day that I could use better.
I don’t want to waste this time that I’ve got with my children. I don’t want to spend it on things that are unimportant when children change so very rapidly, but I do have to do a certain amount of work around the house. I also need to do at least a few things for myself. I definitely haven’t been doing that last one very well lately. I need to learn to take a break for myself from time to time. I want to cherish this time and I want to record it as best I can. I want to remember these days later because babies are so precious.
I need to remember this quote more often and remind myself to cherish the moments I’ve got, to live in the moment and not rush through it, to recognize the importance of what is going on around me and not take my time on this earth lightly. God has given me this life, a set amount of time, and I shouldn’t just throw it away.
