A Moment in Time: Dividing our Time

Dear all,
I was recently going over our household budget. While taking a close look at the pie chart of our finances, I thought, “What would this look like if I plugged in how I divide my time each week?”
While there were no big surprises, it did get me to think:
How would life look if I could increase time with family by just 5%?
How would life look if I could cut down my commute time by 1%?
With twins coming, is increasing sleep even possible?
What do I need to add that isn’t there?
How does Shabbat (which is a 25 hour day!) weigh in on my allocation?
Each moment in time of our lives is a precious gift, and we have the opportunity to spend it wisely, divide it appropriately, and share it graciously!
With love and Shalom,
Rabbi Zach Shapiro
