Chapter 12, Page 27, Book 20



Time - Use it or lose it.  Time like a snowflake, disappears while we’re trying to decide what to do with it.  The surest way to be late is to have plenty of time.

Leo Kennedy

December 27th - thankful Sunday



Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

Bertrand Russell

Today I’m thankful I have all the time I need to think good thoughts and be grateful for them.  My thoughts this week have been wide and varied, from sadness to happiness.  I was sad not to have our usual family gathering but so happy we could see and talk to each other over a Zoom call on Saturday. 

I’m thankful for today, another day and a chance to have time to get it right. Spending my time thinking about what is truly important in my life is not wasted time.  It helps me keep focused on the important things in my life.

I’m thankful to have had the time to spend with DE#5 and DD who shared their children with me, Children know how to enjoy Christmas to the fullest!  Nothing but joy in their faces.

Although it was a different Christmas, I’m thankful it was all good!

 


Don’t waste your time in anger, regrets, worries and grudges.  Life is too short to be unhappy.

Roy T. Bennett

Life is too short to be anything but happy!

Well if the experts are right and the vaccine does what it is supposed to do, next year's Christmas should be more like ones in the past. It was good you did have some family time in person and online with your loved ones Ma :)

I am happy this Sunday morning...the sun is shining!! We had a zoom call earlier this month and I felt a little awkward, guess you have to get used to them. But it is so nice we have them isn't it.

Oh, how I can relate to this! Instead of dreading this season of my life (as I'd feared in my younger days), I'm trying to cherish the present. And usually succeeding. Yay!
Sweet, your being able to witness your littles' joy.

I'm so glad you were still able to have a nice Christmas Ma.

Time, what a subject. Oh yes I laughed at the one quote about when you have plenty time you can be late. Ain't that the truth.
However I do like to TRY to use our time wisely. WE only have so much or it. ;-)

Love from a cool time here in Florida.

I guess we may have to learn that ZOOM thing. ;-)
