Do Not Regret

Monday, June 17, 2013

When one has lost family or friends at an early age, one fully understands the privileges of each given day we have. Take today and keep reaching for your goals. Even though that goal is not met today, when the privilege is granted for the next day, continue to walk and the day will be the best day of your life! Enjoy and God bless.
Thank you for all your comments and notes.

  Funny thing---
I think that I went to that same school Paula3420 went to --!!
I had that mean, miserable teacher when I was a teenager. She was a grouchy, sarcastic, cruel kind of teacher. The BEST lesson she taught me was--- NOT to be like her !! Every single day I can find blessings to smile about, and I cherish each new day as a gift from God---

God bless all Sparkers!

    SO TRUE, I've not seen it put this way. BUT, it rings so true and is a good reminder. When, I was a teenager, I had a teacher that seemed so VERY MISERABLE. I remember thinking at the time, I want to live my life without regret and do as many wonderful things in my life and LOVE EVERY MINUTE. because I did not want to find myself at her age grumpy and unhappy about each day. I do see each day as a gift from God and one to cherish and be thankful to be living. emoticon

    I lost my mom when she was 59. Way too young to pass. I am now 65 and every year on my birthday I realize how lucky I am. I have lived longer than mom and by no means am I ready to go.

    Thanks for doing such a great blog. I lost my brother-in-law when we were all 29 in a tragic farm accident. My sister was left a widow with three children ubder the age of seven. Yes, she eventually re-married and her husband has treated her children as his own--she is very fortunate to have this man in her life.

    I have said the same thing. I am a young 84, just wrote a blog about a surgery I plan to have. Had one March 8th. I say so many people die so young.

    That was great. I lost someone very special to me when he was only 46, and I miss him dearly. It also helped me realize that I need to enjoy each and every day, because none of us know when it will be our time. I am slowly learning how to live without regrets. Thanks for sharing that with us. emoticon

    I am not shy about saying I am 68. I am older than both of my parents at their deaths. My mother only lived 47 years, while my father lived 62 years. I am now shooting to see if I equal my grand mother who died at 90. Of course, if Jesus wants to come first, I would really like that!

    How true this is. I have many relatives and friends who left this world too soon. And as each day goes by I think about them always. I can't understand sometimes why I'm still here.

    The only regrets I have are the loss of a younger physical body that could do most everything. What is the old person said, "If I had known I would live this long I would have taken better care of myself".
