You could search the outer edges of the galaxy and you wouldn’t find anything more valuable than time. Buying a gift is easy. Giving money – easier. But understanding time is limited means spending it is the pinnacle of human currency. To say, “I’d like to spend some of my time with you,” is deeper than “I love you.”
You could be anywhere with anyone but here you are with me. In the continuum of space and time, right here and now we’re present with each other.
You could be smiling at someone else but you’re smiling at me. Your tears could be wiped by another’s hand. Every minute of your time is a minute of your life, and I’m grateful for the time we spend together.
