  • Just 5 More Minutes....

    While at the park one day, a woman sat down next to a man on a bench near
    a playground. "That's my son over there," she said, pointing to a little
    boy in a red sweater who was gliding down the slide.

    "He's a fine looking boy" the man said. "That's my son on the swing in the
    blue sweater." Then, looking at his watch, he called to his son. "What do
    you say we go, Todd?" Todd pleaded, "Just five more minutes, Dad. Please?
    Just five more minutes."

    The man nodded and Todd continued to swing to his heart's content. Minutes
    passed and the father stood and called again to his son. "Time to go now?"
    Again Todd pleaded, "Five more minutes, Dad. Just five more minutes." The
    man smiled and said, "O.K."

    "My, you certainly are a patient father," the woman responded.

    The man smiled and then said, "My older son Tommy was killed by a drunk
    driver last year while he was riding his bike near here. I never spent
    much time with Tommy and now I'd give anything for just five more minutes
    with him. I've vowed not to make the same mistake with Todd. He thinks he
    has five more minutes to swing. The truth is, I get Five more minutes to
    watch him play."

    Life is all about making priorities, what are your priorities? Give
    someone you love 5 more minutes of your time today.

                    Yeah, 5 minutes can change your entire life.

                    My husband and I were traveling on Labor Day weekend two years ago and came upon a head on collision. It was horrible, a mom and dad and their two little boys were killed and a teenager in the other vehicle as well. We tried to help save the teenager, but his injuries were too severe. This will forever haunt me. And it changed their families' lives forever.
