Tick Tock, Tick Tock; whatever I do the hands on the clock still click Tick Tock as Time waves goodbye.
With good health I squeezed as much do’ing as I could into every working day. Then at home I stuffed more into my spare time too.
How are you people would ask...Very busy, not a second to spare I would proudly reply… I could do with a few more hours was another and I just don’t know where the time goes was my favourite…
I woke up on a Monday and all of a sudden it was Friday. A whole week had passed and as hard as I tried I could not get it back! But with my rumbling health my ability and desire to squeeze, cram and stuff things in has diminished.
I often feel worthless. Have no value. I have believed self value came from output and achievements at work and in play.
But when a friend visits, her face frowning with stress, I listen and listen and offer a cradle of support. As she leaves with a smile on her face a wave of self worth weaves its way into my grin
I have Time which I can give freely to others.
I have ears which I can use to actively listen.
I have years of experience embedded in my brain which I can offer when my energy allows.
On my cancer journey I am taken to hospital appointments by volunteer drivers who give their Time for free. And friends think nothing of using their Time to drive many miles for us to share a day out.
The sun warms my heart when a friends offers her Time to collect me for a beauty appointment, while another picks me up and brings me home after a morning of singing my soul out!
There's no time like the present
No Present like Time
And life can be over in the space of a rhyme
There's no gift like friendship
And no love like mine
Give me your love to treasure through time
