FROM A 94 YEAR YOUNG LADY
Have a look at these great words of inspiration on Time and
Life from the inner vision and life experiences of a 94 year
young wonderful lady known as 'Mary Pappalardo' living in
Florida, USA, and fondly called 'Mataji' - meaning 'Mother'.
I truly believe we all can learn a lot from these words by
making practical application of the things we need to do,
think, and meditate upon in our everyday life.
The word 'Time' as measured
in letters is small;
But in analyzing its meaning, it can indicate a different
For as we pursue our lives each day,
Time, in essence, is the price we pay
For what we do, and what we say
Did I hug my spouse, or mate, or child
Before learning to begin my new day?
And did I meditate in gratitude for
The richness of blessings
That has fortunately come my way?
Did I greet my neighbor, or friend
As we met on the bus
Or did I think all these feats of love and giving
Were all too much fuss?
marks Birth as well as Death
Time marks birth as
well as death;
Time marks new beginnings,
New enterprises, good fortunes, and wealth;
Time generously marks leisure, as it also marks rest
But time also demands our share to work,
As we rightfully enjoy and secure our 'rest'
Consider a new day as a day of promise and of hope
Another day for us to plan with patience to cope
As the daily events of life slowly unfold
Be they exciting or passive, or perhaps bold?
The life of a friend can positively change,
Despite the stressful experiences
That appear within his range,
And fortunately time does help to soothe and ease the pain;
As we gladly participate
To witness the rewards of his happier domain
Time can inspire us
So that we can see, can do, can say
Everything and anything that will touch
The hearts of those we love each day
In any event, time will always be there
For us to feel its pain, its joy
Its beauty, all of which, we gladly share
With all for whom we love and all
For whom we care
