“God gave you a gift of 86400 seconds today. Have you used one to say thank you?”
― William Arthur Ward
I’m grateful for ‘time’. Time moves fast – but it’s something we must be grateful for.
I’m grateful for the 57 years I’ve lived. 57 x 365 x 86400 – that’s a lot of seconds…a lot of time.
86400 Seconds x All The Days of February
As I look back on February I’m grateful for :
Times of learning
Time spent working
Mad and crazy times
Times I’ve despaired.
Times I’ve been on top of the world….
All the time spent with loved ones.
I’m grateful for the time people have taken to invest in me – loving me, teaching me, coaching me and simply just being there.
