    emoticon emoticon IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER - emoticon emoticon
    ~~Erma Bombeck~~~(written after she found out 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, I would cherish the relationships I have with those who do love me.
    I would think about what God HAS blessed me with, and what I am doing each day
    to promote myself mentally, physically, emotionally.

    After reading this, I realized how many more "I would" add to this list.
    "I would" share this with my friends, because my life is pretty wonderful with them in it.

    If someone ever says you're weird, say thank you, and then curtsy.
    No, don't curtsy. Bow. And then tip your imaginary hat. That'll show them.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Have a fabulous day!~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon emoticon What do I get? emoticon emoticon
    What I focus on life is what I get,
    and if I concentrate on how bad I am or how wrong I am or how inadequate I am,
    if I concentrate on what I can't do and how there's not enough time in which to do it,
    isn't that what I get every time?
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    And when I think how powerful I am, and when I think about
    what I have left to contribute, and when I think about the difference
    I can make on this planet, then that's what I get.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    You see, I recognize that it's not what happens to you;
    it's what you do about it.

    You laugh, I laugh...you cry, I cry.
    You fall, I laugh, then I fall too, because I was laughing too hard.
    I laugh even harder when I try to explain why I'm laughing.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    My favorite pain is in my stomach when my friends make me laugh too hard.
    Nothing compares with the stomach ache I get from laughing with my best friend.
    That awkward moment when you can't stop laughing while telling a joke, and you're finally done, your friend doesn't even get it.
