Five Minute Fridays is the time when you sit down, set the timer for 5 minutes and just write, no editing, no planning, just write. Each week is a new word. This week the word is Time. So, ready, set, and let's go!
How much time do we have in our life? Do we have a little time? Like my uncle who passed within days of birth? Just enough time to know love and bring a smile to the face of those who love us? Or do we have a short amount of time, like my cousin who passed at 18 years after defeating leukemia? Enough time to love and be loved. Enough time to show the world what a person is supposed to be like. Do we have a fair amount of time? Making it to our 70s like my husband's grandma before losing the battle to brain cancer. But still having time to raise kids, grandkids and even seeing your great grandkids. Seeing the bad, but more good. Or do we have a lot of time, like my great grandpa who will be turning 101 next week. The time of seeing a lot of history. Seeing kids, grandkids, great grandkids and even great great grandkids grow. Knowing that you have been gifted this time to pass on greatness. And hearing that you have passed on the values of your time.
Time means so much to so many. To me, that word is more than the time on a clock, it is the time we spend with others and what we leave them with.
What does time mean to you?
