Only 900 Hours

text size A A A

This post was inspired by summertime conversations with my grandson—as we talked about ways to manage school, home, and life.

Okay kids here’s the good news: you’ll only spend 900 hours in the classroom this next school year. Which means you’ll have nearly 8000 hours at home doing other stuff. Yeah, I know there’s homework. But if you use those 900 school hours wisely, maybe there will be less to do at home.

Your mom and dad are probably working too. It can be hectic getting out the door in the morning and you’re all pretty tired when you get back home.

But here’s something important to do—love those who love you. Helping each other is a way to show it.

Remember, it’s only 900 school hours. That leaves time for sports, TV, and video games, but also take time to look around your house, put things away, help in the kitchen, take the garbage out, you know the routine.

When we help those we love, we all feel better at the end of a long day. Having loving homes makes our world (and schools) a nicer place.

If you want to change the world, go home and love your family. Mother Teresa
