Stop and spend a little time laughing. At times life is too serious. What time is it anyway?
America changes from daylight savings time to standard time and vice versa in the Spring and Fall seasons. We all remember phrases “Fall Back” or “Spring Ahead?” Turn the clocks back one hour in the Fall and turn ahead an hour in Spring.
When do you change the clocks? What month? What week? It’s always Sunday morning at 2:00 am, but
who stays awake to turn the clocks at exactly 2:00 am? Most people change their clocks before going to bed.
Life seems to be more complicated and stressful than ever before. It seems like the basic things in life are easily overlooked. Your time and your presence are most valuable presents for anyone.
How hard is it to know when to change the clocks? When someone tells you to? Have you confirmed when time changes with the local newspapers, news or internet? Are you too busy to care and count on others?
A few years back I reminded everyone that the clocks were to change on the weekend. It was that special weekend to get an extra hour of sleep. Unfortunately, in the case of those with sleep difficulties it’s another night to find oneself restless for an extra hour at night.
Every one I told mentioned it to another becoming a ripple effect. Sunday my telephone was ringing off the hook. Every one I knew was late to work, or late to church, and others didn’t notice until Monday morning when children were late to school.
I was sure I was right, but I guess I was wrong. Not this weekend! The weekend to change the clocks was switched to the first weekend in November. I guess it was a dress rehearsal. This is a fine example where timing is everything!
