Time goes by so quickly that a person hardly has enough time to really appreciate the time that they have.

I can, according to her logic, transpose that energy into cleaning up 
things. Then she will confront me with a favorite saying of hers, 
“Cleanliness is next to godliness.” 

One of these days, when I get up the courage, I am going to ask her to
show me where that verse is in the Bible. I kind of think a person can 
be too clean, like squeaky clean. You know how squeaky gets on people's 
nerves, especially mine. 

My favorite saying is, “Laziness is next to everything.” 

Perhaps that is why I like summer so much. There are shades of laziness
that can only be exploited in the good old summertime. 

Some people, like the one who shares a residence with me, things that
laziness is a very negative thing. This person honestly believes that 
if she is not doing something all the time she is lazy. Something good 
can be said about being lazy. You get to savor a moment of 
non-activity. 

The thing I like so much about summer is the activity you do do is only
the activity that you want to do like sitting on the back porch, 
drinking a glass of lemonade, which is what summer is all about. 

Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, understood this concept very
well. He says, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every 
purpose under the heaven,” (Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV). 

Time goes by so quickly that a person hardly has enough time to really
appreciate the time that they have.
