[my life, my blessings, my journey]

Linked 52: Time

Time. It's the one thing we never, ever seem to have enough of in this life. With my brother home on a ten-day leave before shipping out overseas, I feel like I'm watching each day slip through our fingers, like those tiny little grains of sand.

No matter how much time we spend with him before he goes, it won't ever be enough.

I don't want him to go but I don't want him to stay more. This is his time.

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” - Eric Roth

Great picture. I'm so glad you get to have the time you do with him and that you are close enough to even want to. It's obvious that you are making every moment count.

What a special time to have with him! But I can also see how bitter sweet it is to say goodbye. What a blessing to have the little time you do have!
