It’s that time, once again, to change our clocks in the ‘spring ahead’ direction, losing an hour of our sleep. I think most of us are glad that the change happens in the middle of the night, so when we wake we don’t really notice our loss. Unless it’s a work day or you attend sunday school, it really makes do difference if you even remember to wind it forward or not. The technological era we live in simply can not and will not let us forget about the time change. Cell phones, computers and some alarm clocks are set to accommodate daylight saving time for us, one less thing for us to be concerned with. All the same, I think it’s good for us to notice and acknowledge the time change. Not only is it a convenient time to change the batteries in our smoke detectors and alarm systems, it’s the perfect time to take stock of our spare time and what we do with it. If you find you don’t have any, get some. Make the time to have free time, and don’t let the official time keepers rob you of that precious spring hour, even if they are sneaky enough to do it while you sleep and clever enough to offer it back to you in the fall. So tomorrow, instead of wondering how you’re going to get done all you need to get done in a 23 hour day, reclaim your stolen hour and allow yourself to do something you might otherwise not do. It’s your time, after all, and no matter what you call it, 7 o’clock or 8 o’clock, it’s still there for you to spend.
