If you could save time in a bottle, what would you save?

“If I could save time in a bottle

The first thing that I’d like to do

Is to save every day till eternity passes away

Just to spend them with you”

 From “Time in a Bottle” by Jim Croce

Where did the time go? One minute she is speaking in her own funny language, running on the sand and the next she is a busy executive for a large company. How is it that our children grow up, but we feel the same as we did when they were babies? Even when we try to hold on tight, the strings of time still slip from our fingers.

I am happy to have time pass and enjoy our beautiful life, but there are times in life that I wish I could just keep in that bottle.

How about you?
