Time and Friends!
Imagine if there was a bank which credited
your account each morning with $86,400. It carried over no balance from day to day,
allowed you to keep no cash balance, and every evening canceled whatever part of the
amount you failed to use during the day. What would you do?
Draw out every cent, of
course! Well, everyone has such a bank. It's called TIME.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400
seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever part of this you fail
to invest in a good purpose. It allows no overdraft. Each day it opens a new
account for you. Each night it burns the records of the day. If you fail to
use the day's deposits, the loss is yours. There is no going back. There is
no drawing against the "tomorrow". You must live in the present on today's
deposits. You have to invest in it to get the utmost in health, happiness,
and success. The clock is running. Make the most of today...

ask a mother who has given birth to a pre-mature 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 laborer who has ten kids to feed.
To realize the value of ONE HOUR
ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
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 survived an accident.
To realize the value of ONE
MILLI-SECOND ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics.
Treasure every moment that you
have. And treasure it more because you shared it with some special people ...
special enough to have shared your (and their) time...
ALWAYS remember ... Time waits for
no one! Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it's
called the present.
Friends are a
very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an
ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their heart to us.
Send this to everyone you
consider a FRIEND.
