A View From the Porch (March 11, 2015)

Have you gotten used to the time change yet?  I haven’t been late to anything, but when left to my own internal clock, I’m going to sleep later and waking up later.  It’s so dark in the morning and the light in the evening makes me think it’s earlier than it is.

My internal clock…the one that goes by the sun…runs differently than our human-made, atomic clock, satellite driven time.  Yes, this human-made time is great for planning meetings, and catching trains and planes.

But there’s another kind of time — precious and not measured in seconds or minutes or hours.  It’s the time of memories and moments shared together.  It’s life as we live it. It’s the moments we remember.  It’s the Skype call where my grandson and I develop a totally new guessing game and my granddaughter shows me her First Communion Dress, veil and the oh so important gloves.

As so many of our guests know, time for making these memories is precious.  Life can change in an instant…an illness requiring massive life changes for months or resulting in the death of a loved one and the subsequent mourning and readjustment.  When you support St. Agnes’ House with your prayers, your in-kind donations and with your money you ease these sudden time changes.

I’ll eventually adjust to this Daylight Savings Time change.  But more importantly, I pray that all of us never take for granted the precious, precious time making memories with those we love.

Love, Rebecca+
