    Smile Value of Time

    Advertisements
    This popped up in my facebook news feed and I liked soo I thought I would share!

    P.S sorry I'm a whore tonight lol



    To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a soldier that hasn't been home in 365 days.

    To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a new mom who captures every moment of her baby's life that her husband is missing.

    To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the wife that's waited by the phone while her husband is on a mission.

    To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are saying goodbye the morning of a deployment.

    To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask the girlfriend who just missed his call.

    To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask the servicemen who came home when others in their unit may not have.

    Time is so precious and yet it is only when it seems to work against us that we realize the value it holds.

    When you would give anything for a five minute phone call.
    When you cry at night because your loved one is missing their child grow up.
    When you sigh in frustration because that one minute you left your phone to take a shower only to realize you missed his call.
    when you realize that you'll never get back the months you've spent sleeping alone without your loved one beside you...

    It's only then that you realize that we have been given a gift so great that not a second should pass where we don't make the most of it. You are lucky to have the knowledge of this preciousness. Many will never understand the profound impact of "wasting" your days holding your lovers hand at the supermarket or spending the day in bed doing absolutely nothing. Even though time might be your enemy right now, be thankful knowing that you're one of the few who truly understands the meaning of TIME.

    I really like this. I'm definitely relating to the value of a month right now. DH has missed 5 months of DD's 6 months here and each day he misses something new. But it definitely has changed my perspective on so many things. Thanks for this
