Deep Thoughts To Ponder

If I Had My Life To Live Over
by Erma Bombeck
If I had my life to live over, I would have talked less and listened more.I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained and 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 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 burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.I would have sat on the lawn with my children and not worried about grass stains.I would have cried and laughed less while watching television - and more while watching life.I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.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 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 sorrys" ...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.




Someone very close to me sent this, and it got me thinking about my own life.....We all have things we wish we could have done differently if given the chance. I would have spent more time studying in school instead of daydreaming,if I would have known how hard it would have been to get an education the older I got.Relationships that made me go "OH MY GOODNESS, WHAT WAS I THINKING". I would have tried to avoid.........everyone has something painful from the past, but the most painful relationship I was ever in gave me the most beautiful thing imaginable...my daughter.... we take the good with the bad,we hope we are the best Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister, and Friend that we can be and we learn from the mistakes that we make along the way.........This is way to deep for me....I need to find a rerun of HBO'S True Blood......."Bill,where are you"?..............I will stop now, and ponder later..........

Lotions, Potions and the Cold Hard Truth

Vanity......Why are we so worried about the lines on our face?....Why can't we just look at what the years have created and go, good job.....WHATEVER.......

I have never felt that I was attractive, my face has many flaws, lots and lots of what I call battle scars, divorce,wrong decisions and and the stressful times of being a single parent takes a toll on a body, not to mention all those years of sun worshiping.

I am not sure if it's because my daughter just turned twenty seven, or the fact that I will soon be another year older in March....and another year closer to the big five- O.....But vanity and age has really got me down latley...


Now, I have bought ever lotion, potion ,and miracle cure out there, even going so far to try
Restylane... Restyane, I will compare to a root canal without local anesthetic, and yet I laid there without complaint with tears in my eyes saying " Thank you sir may I have another "....Botox on the other hand, was a walk in the park...begging to be shot up like a druggie on a street corner ....But when is enough enough, no one in the real world wants to look like Joan Rivers (do they) will someone please tell me....
When will we say were happy with the lines on our faces and just walk proud...... when I was in my thirties I use to think that each line was my own, something that I had earned... life's lesson's if you will...the ones on my forehead were divorce, struggle and all the difficulties I endeared throughout my lifetime before god had blessed me with my husband, but now I will be the first to tell you that that is a bunch of BULL..... give me the botulism.........(if there is an online therapy group...please feel free to contact me, before I call Joan Rivers ).

I spent some quality time with my granddaughter on Sunday, we went to pick up something to eat and I was minding my business listening to Peter Frampton on the radio ..."Do you like that song Grammie?"... Yes, I replied...."You cant like that, that's rock music and that's for young people"....WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY!!!! That's for young people.....I tried to tell her Peter Frampton was something that I listened to when I was young..we argued back and forth for a few minutes...SHE WASN'T BUYING IT....In her eyes.... I WAS TO OLD......all I can say is .......I sure did LIKE that little girl...............

WHAT WAS I THINKING..... The scooter is for twelve and up....she will be SEVEN in March...........

What is your opinion on the paranormal, do you believe....is there things that go bump in the night....I just happen to believe there is things that haven't crossed over yet... I have had several paranormal experiences, my first was when I was three and we lived in a house that was haunted, doors opening and closing, dishes moving across the room, people sitting at the foot of your bed...THAT WASN'T YOUR FAMILY(you never get over that ). I have had several experiences since I was a child, and no one will ever convince me that everyone... goes toward the light..........
Check out this video link from Gettysburg and let me know what you think..........

THE PAIN CONTINUES


Because of so much sickness on our end and my families, we didn't get to have Christmas until after new years. And, because my dad wont stop asking for naughty gifts, he didn't get this in time for Mrs. Claus to share with him on Christmas Eve......One year I am going to give my Daddy a heart attack.......When will he learn?........When will I stop?.............. Will my Mother talk to me again??????? One thing I know, nothing I can do will ever top " Jeanna " the vinyl love slave...............Sorry Mommy..........

Happy New Year Family and Friends

Here are two wonderful quotes for the New Year.....
Be always at war with you vices, at peace with your neighbor's and friends, and let each New Year find you a better man.....Benjamin Franklin

People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and New Year, but they should really be worried about what they eat between New Years and Christmas....Author Unknown

My God bless you and yours with all the New Year has to bring, because you deserve it....Me
