~THANKS FOR TAKIN TIME~


Hey everyone, it's that time of the year... time to set your clocks back an hour! Don't forget, sometime tonight you need to run around your house and don't forget your car; you might want to start early! Now I always remember with the saying of "fall back and spring forward", meaning I gain an hour in the winter and loose an hour in the spring. To my way of thinking, we now will have 23 hours in the day right, or is it 25? Whatever it is, surely we have time to reflect, to remember and to take the time to make a phone call, to listen to a friend, to provide guidance to the young or engage in a meaningful conversation as in the picture you just looked at! If memory serves me right, that particular pow-wow, my dear friend Joan was engaged in a meaningful conversation with my then 2 year-old Godson Kamryn on the great fun he would reap from allowing her to play by "doing" his hair!!! Ah, the benefits indeed! He was most intrigued and benefited from the loving and time consuming conversation. He is 8 years old now and wears his hair cropped quite close to his head often being mistaken for a very young Obama! Just wondering if there was any connections there! hahaha
Ah, but I digress... Back to the hands of time. We fall back yes, that's it...  Time is a gift. A beautiful and treasured thing. If you are reading this today, not only am I honored, but you have taken your precious time to do so and I thank you. More importantly, you have wonderful choices to make with your time... It just may be that you can bring so much to a person with your gift of time. A phone call, a random act of kindness. Just yesterday I received an email that I may share with you in bits over the days, but today I will share the following:
I hope you will take the time to think about and act upon these truths:
1. At least 2 people in this world love you so much they would die for you.
2. At least 5 people in this world love you in some way.
3.A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you!
4.Every night, someone thinks about YOU before they go to sleep.
5.YOU mean the world to someone.
6. If not for you someone may not be the person they are today.
7. YOU are special and unique.
8. YOUR thoughts will determine what you do, what you have, who you are.
9. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good can still come from it.
10. When you think the world has turned its back on you... take a better look; you most likely have turned your back on the world!
11.Take time to believe.
12.Take time to wonder...
13.Take time to laugh.... even if at yourself!
14.. When you take the time to talk with and spend time with a child (like Joan did with Kamryn) it feels good and it makes a difference in a beautiful way.
15. Take time to celebrate this day, right here.... right now.
16... Take Time for YOU and those you love, and even those you don't, they will be better because you did!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
