NaBloPoMo Day 3 - Time Flies
You'd be waiting for a trip to Disneyland, or your birthday, or a special event, and the days would just seem to drag by. You'd mark each day off on the calendar trudging on through.
Now it seems like time just flies. I set plans for a few months away, then all of a sudden it seems like it's here. We have dinner plans, or special events, or even a row of days off from work. Bam! The next thing you know it's passed.
Tonight we're given an extra hour, and all I can think of is "thank the Lord I don't have to work a 13 hour shift." I know most of us are thinking, "Yeah, I get to sleep for an extra hour." But, I stop to wonder for how many people this extra hour is going to make a difference. One more hour to spend with a loved one. One more hour to wait for the birth of a child. One more hour to...
Of course, if you're in a bar, it's one more hour in which to have another round... We did that once. The bartender rang the bell and hollered "Last call!" then said "Just kidding...!" An hour later it was "Last call!" One more hour to spend with friends... that's the best way to spend time.
