May we, this day, take stock of the value of our contributions to the world. Let us not sell ourselves short for our industry and our talents; let us also maintain a generosity of heart and spirit. Worldly wealth will only go so far; riches of the spirit will last a lifetime and beyond. The balance between those two realities is tenuous, and requires our attention, lest we tip and fall. May we always be mindful that our time is valuable, for it is all we have. May we invest it well, that our responsibilities are met, yet our values are upheld. May we feel our time has been well-spent, and not devalued, paying in dividends both material and divine. For the precious commodity of time we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
