Life moves at a metered pace. Sometimes the time seems to go by quickly and sometimes it just seems to drag on. Just as the earth keeps spinning, and the sun keeps rising and setting, time always keeps its schedule. And it is totally up to us to know how to use it effectively.
I have always been of the mind that children are best raised on the rolling hills of the countryside, singing and dancing their way to the barn each morning, happily milking cows and tending to their daily chores, with only their siblings for companionship.
