My birthday just passed last month – one billion seconds since I was born.
According to some calculations, I passed one billions seconds on Sunday, 23 January 2011 at 6:49:40 PM (local time, which is the same as the time I was born in). Depending on how the billion seconds is calculated, and depending on daylight savings and whatnot. Also, some seconds are longer than others.
Like the second when Littletree was born – that’s a second I will remember and cherish always.
The second when Littletree was about 2, and running down a street in Tel Aviv towards a bomb that was about to be detonated was a second that stretched out for a really long time.
The second when we crashed our car that was probably about 20 seconds, but it all happened in a second of my perception.
Time is rubber, sometimes the seconds race by, sometimes they drag on, but every one of them is precious, every moment is worth living for and worth cherishing.
We change the future with every choice we make, and we make choices every second, so make them count.
