Like sand through the hourglass

I moved to Illinois almost exactly 7 years ago to take my current job post. I never post about my job, and am not going to do so now, except to share this photo.
Everything on this shelf has a story but the one I'm posting about is the jar of scented oil. That was given to me on my first Christmas here and it's a miracle jar. I've never added any oil it and you can see how much is still left after 6 1/2 years. I told someone today that it's my hourglass and when it runs out, I'll know my time here is done. Now I won't know whether to start filling it up or pouring it out!

P.S. Yes, it is still providing a wonderful scent to my office.
