~ IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER ~
~~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. I would stop sweating the small stuff.
I wouldn't worry about who doesn't like me, who has more, or who's doing what. Instead,
I would cherish the relationships I have with those who 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.
Wishing you a Blessed Day

The bunnies are well! We were able to sell several as pets! We're keeping 2 females but still have 10 males left altogether.... separated... so hopefully no more unexpected deliveries!
How are you? I'm getting excited about planting :)

Valentine's Day gives me a reason to express the feelings,
I think about but don't say to people, who enrich my life in unique and meaningful ways.
You are this kind of person. When I think of you, my thoughts are warm, and fond,
And filled with admiration. I feel blessed to know you.
May your Valentine's Day be filled with the love and respect you deserve.
Have a Happy Valentine's Day

I don't know why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day.
When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short,
chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!

It's your road and yours alone...others may walk it with you,
but no one can walk it for you.
