Today I am joining the lovely Tricia over at A Rosy Note for her Photo Feature Friday. This weeks theme is vintage and I thought of something special that I had and wanted to try and see if I could join in the fun. :)
This is my grandpa's pocket watch.
I can only remember a small point in his life that he carried it with him but he often spoke of time and time being on his side.
He started many stories with "What a wonderful time it was."
He was a patient man and I can remember him saying to us often when we were growing up "That in good time......."
I also remember that as he got older he would tell us "When it is my time...."
Time can mean so many things to us, it can work with us and it can work against us.
It is the one of the only things that we know stays consistent.
Here are a few quotes that caught my eye and gave me something to think about...
"In good times and bad times, I'll be on your side for ever more...that's what friends are for."
"We all have time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams."
"Time is a like a handful of sand-the tighter you grasp it,the faster it runs through your fingers."
"How long a minute is, depends on which side of the bathroom that you are on"
Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you" - Carl Sandburg
