Time - we assume we have all the time in the world.
We go about our daily activities, sometimes numb as to how we went from one activity to another.
Why is it important to value time?
Most importantly, because we do not know just how much time we, or our loved ones have left.
It is shocking when someone we know or love dies unexpectedly. We are left confused, shocked, angry. It is terribly hard to understand that one minute a person is on this earth, and the next they are not.
When someone has an illness or a drawn out death, again, we are often shocked at the finality of death. Some say, "but I knew it was coming, why is it so hard"?
Death is why we get to value time.
