The Value of Time

To realize the value of ten years:
Ask a newly divorced couple

To realize the value of four years:
Ask a graduate.

To realize the value of one year:
Ask a student who has failed a final exam.

To realize the value of nine months:
Ask a mother who gave birth to a stillborn.

To realize the value of one month:
Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of one week:
Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of one minute:
Ask a person who has missed a train, bus or plane.

To realize the value of one-second:
Ask a person who has survived an accident.

To realize the value of a sister:
Ask someone who doesn't have one.

To realize the value of a friend or family member:
LOSE ONE.

Time waits for no one.
Treasure every moment you have.
You will treasure it even more if you can share it with someone special.
