Thinking of Time . . . and Times Past . . .

Shauna's Family Home Evening message on time brought back memories of our favorite songs in the 1970's, which we played over and over again on the 8-Track Stereo in our 1965 Dodge Dart in Laurinburg, North Carolina, where Chris was a little boy with a Southern accent and Lisa and Gina were born at the Scotland Memorial Hospital, where Shauna decided to give birth rather than drive 35 miles to the "white" clinic in Pinehurst. Jim Croce was a great singer and we still love his music and lyrics.

If I could save Time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
'Til Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

This is how Robert Valentine feels about drop-dead gorgeous Shauna Burgon after forty years plus!
