The Value of ONE SECOND

I really liked this.  I'm sure many of us can relate to one or more, or have one of our own.  I can relate because my twins were three months premature and those months while they were in the NICU were the hardest of my life.  They just had their 7th birthday on Monday, and they're truly a blessing!

To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who has failed a grade.

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 DAY, ask a daily wage labourer who has kids to feed.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the bride who is waiting to meet her groom.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who has missed the train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who has avoided an accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics.



Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time…. and remember that time waits for no one……


Yesterday is history…..
Tomorrow a mystery……
Today is a gift. That is why it is called the Present.

Now they're healthy, beautiful girls—but I'll never forget what I went through when they were born. And I'll always be grateful!  Another week early and they may not even be here.
