Here is an angel sent to watch over you. Please ... pass it on.
IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER - by Erma Bombeck (after she learned she was dying from cancer).
I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding
pattern if I weren't there for the day.
I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.
I would have talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.
I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried much less about the dirt
when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.
I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.
I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.
I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had
just been teased and sprayed.
I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.
I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn't show soil, or was
guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment and realized
that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.
When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, "Later. Now go get washed up for
dinner." There would have been more "I love you's." More "I'm sorry's."
But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute ... look at it and really see it ...
live it ... and never give it back. Stop sweating the small stuff. Don't worry about who doesn't like
you, who has more, or who's doing what. Instead, let's cherish the relationships we have with
those who do love us. Let's think about what the Universe has blessed us with. And what we are
doing each day to promote ourselves mentally, physically, emotionally, as we only get one shot at
it in this World and then it's gone. I hope you all have a blessed day.
Insights of a Woman
Age 3: She looks at herself and sees a Queen.
Age 8: She looks at herself and sees Cinderella.
Age 15: She looks at herself and sees an Ugly Sister
(Mom I can't go to school looking like this !)
Age 20: She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too
curly"- but decides she's going out anyway.
Age 30: She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too
curly" - but decides she doesn't have time to fix it, so she's going out anyway.
Age 40: She looks at herself and sees "clean" and goes out anyway.
Age 50: She looks at herself and sees "I am" and goes wherever she wants to go.
Age 60: She looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can't even see themselves
in the mirror anymore. Goes out and conquers the world.
Age 70: She looks at herself and sees wisdom, laughter and ability, goes out and enjoys life.
Age 80: Doesn't bother to look. Just puts on a purple hat and goes out to have fun with
the world.
Send this link to those you love. If you do, something good will happen. You will boost someone's
self esteem. "Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there." --Will Rogers
I asked God to take away my habit. God said, No. It is not for me to take away, but for
you to give it up. I asked God to make my handicapped child whole. God said, No. His
spirit is whole, his body is only temporary. I asked God to grant me patience. God said,
No. Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is learned. I asked God
to give me happiness. God said, No. I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you. I
asked God to spare me pain. God said, No. Suffering draws you apart from worldly
cares and brings you closer to me. I asked God to make my spirit grow. God said, No.
You must grow on your own ! But I will prune you to make you fruitful. I asked God for
all things that I might enjoy life. God said, No. I will give you life, so that you may enjoy
all things. I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me. God said ...
Ahhhh, finally you have the idea. THIS DAY IS YOURS DON'T THROW IT AWAY. May
The Universe Bless You and Smile Upon You. "To the world you might be one person,
but to one person you just might be the world."
