Quality and Quantity Time

During morning devotions with his two young daughters, our family friend, Bill Cage, realized he hadn't been spending as much time with his girls as he wanted. After apologizing he said, "You know, it's not always important the quantity of time we spend together, as it is the quality of time we spend together."

Kristen, 6, and Madison, 4, didn't quite understand.

Bill further explained, "Quantity means how much time, and quality means how good the time is we spend together. Which would you rather have?"

Not missing a beat, Kristen replied, "Quality time. And a lot of it!"
