I wrote this for Gracious Goodbyes, a wonderful blog created by my friend Jill.
The older I get, the more I recognize the value of time. Not about how time working equals financial gain, but the relational value of time.
When we’re young, time seems like an endless commodity. We don’t think much about how we spend our time, or with whom we spend it; we just live, doing what we want, with whom we want, when we want.
As I grow older, and life brings more choices and stresses, I realize that our time is limited, especially the time we have to spend with people we love.
