Gideon’s Challenge

Lilac BudsQuality Time

It’s like
drops of water
in a bucket.
A minute here,
an hour there,
each moment
adding to another
and another.
Over time
we build a life
with love.

Quality time doesn’t always come in large chunks of hours on end spent together. In fact, it rarely ever comes in that form. Instead, the truth about love is that quality time comes a little bit at a time, a moment here and a few seconds there, an hour here and a few minutes there.  This is how love develops.  This is how love grows.  This is how you fill a life to the brim with love. You sprinkle it throughout until love eventually becomes the whole of it.

  1. Every moment with you is a moment I treasure. Of course I’d like to have hours on end, but every moment…every single one counts. And I am thankful for each and every one. I’m thankful for you.
