The Christmas Clock
Christmas Greeting Card
I didnt know what to say at my great aunts gift.
Thank you, I smiled trying to conceal my surprise.
Its not for telling time, she replied sitting up,
I know youve a phone and a dozen devices for that.
But what else is a clock for? I gazed at the old-fashioned face.
To remind you to use your finite time wisely.
Life can get overly busy, so occasionally pause and enjoy it.
Youll be surprised at how much you could have missed.
So I took the clock and the advice and a few moments to pause from time to time and was amazed at how right she was.
