This gift is mine to hold but for a while; then I must return it to the One who gave it to me. It is such a treasure, more precious than all of the riches of the world, and what will I do with it in the time which is left for me to possess it? My eyes are just beginning to see its beauty, my mind is just beginning to grasp its worth. The days pass so quickly, and my life is such a wonder. May I never waste another moment of it.
