If time was not the greatest gift to mankind, I don't know what is.
The old myths say "fire is the greatest gift" but, I beg to differ. Fire gives you warmth, light, and hot food,
but, understanding time, appreciating time, and giving/taking time gives you virtue.
Virtue will feed you longer than any hot meal, comfort your soul better than a blanket, and give you better security than a room full of lights.
Things aren't totally better, and if my mind remains on certain things too long, my heart still hurts--badly, but...time has proven to conquer once more, because I do believe to be getting better...little by little.
