Another year

Another year. I've had quite a few, some bad, mostly good. Years, made up of time, no human so far has interfered with its progress as it constantly keeps passing. Some probably never think of the importance of this untouchable and unchangeable thing to which every second of our existence here on Earth depends.

Time has no emotion, no religion, no dependence on anything known to man. For some it speeds by, for others it seems to stand still. Some waste time as if they aren't aware that for humans it is only temporary.

I have wasted many hours of whatever time is allotted to me, but for the remainder of my time I will make every effort to use whatever remains to help my fellow man have a better, happier and freer life. (I didn't know freer was a word until now.)

My hope is that we all realize how some tragedy, sickness, or one of the many unknowns that touch each of us, can cause anyone to run out of this precious thing we call time. You may never get to say “I'm sorry, please forgive me,” “Let me do that for you” and, most important, “I love you.” On the walkway of life love is the most important part. An old song says it all: "Without love I had nothing at all."

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to all.
