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.
