Make The Most Of It (#233)

Time is limited. I know my post yesterday was about time but this is my effort to be present with gratitude. Time stood still in England. Each day felt like the longest 24 hours I had ever experienced. Now that I’m home, each day seems to end before it starts. I’m grateful when I can spend meaningfully with family and friends. I plan to make the most of my time and I plan to do that with gratitude.
