Though silent, the hands of time move on at a relentless pace. Days become years. Summers turn to Fall. Winters to Spring. Regardless of our wishes or demands, time allows no shortcuts and has no favorites. To each a moment is given and within each moment we define ourselves by the choices we make.
As the seasons change, so do our stories; stories of love and loss, of success and failure. Each journey is unique, an expression of who we are, moving us ever closer to our destinies. Circumstances may vary. Heredity and culture may have a voice, but ultimately we make the decisions, chart the course, create the future.
To each of us come moments of truth, choices to be made that turn us around or move us in new directions. There are the many “hello’s” that brighten our lives and the sad “good-byes” that help us grow. There’s laughter and joy, but times too when our hearts are heavy and our minds clouded with pain or sadness.
We may never accomplish all we would like, or experience all there is to experience, for time has boundaries, but we can live a life that is full and complete if we want to. Our investment in life is a good one, no matter where our journeys take us, or how challenging the way.
