Vote with Your Time – Only Time Will Tell!!
In the busy world of today time is our most precious commodity and one for which there are no additional assets. In essence we cannot add time to our days, weeks or lives.
Please take a moment to reflect and remember your mother in honor of Mother’s Day this Sunday. Mothers are our unsung heroes who do not get the recognition or honor as often as she should. To follow I humbly submit to you this story which hits home on the importance of remembering by saying ‘Thank you’
A man stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be wired to his mother who lived two hundred miles away. As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing.
He asked her what was wrong and she replied, “I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother.
But I only have seventy-five cents, and a rose costs two dollars.” The man smiled and said, “Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose.” He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother’s flowers.
As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home. She said, “Yes, please! You can take me to my mother.” She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.
The man returned to the flower shop, canceled the wire order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother’s house.
As my father always told me “you vote with your time” and if it is important your time will tell.
Happy Mother’s Day!
