in that rearview mirror   Leave a comment

as I grow older I think back into the past and the mistakes I have made and the things I would change
I think of my children when they were babies and when they were growing up and how I took all of that for granted
now I have grandchildren and I treasure them so much…….these little replicas of my babies


I have loved and lost and still loved

I have tried to be the best version of myself and I have sacrificed things in order to be there for those I love the most

in the end it is just me sitting here living this life, trying to do God’s will and trying to get through it all


some days are harder than hell

Some days I struggle a lot

other days it is just a blessing to wake up and feel good.

would I change things if I could?

no question about it.
Would I change things for a different outcome?

but this is what it is.
This life I lead

I remember my eldest daughter saying to me once that she didn’t want to come to the end of her life and think “Man I wish I had done this or this”
Unfortunately I already know I will come to the end of my life and wish I had done some things that I haven’t yet done.

If God grants me the chance, then I will do it.

But that is a big IF……….

wishing my life away   Leave a comment

oh how I wish it was May.
So that the trees could be blooming and the grass could be green
I’m not looking forward to the mud of spring and I’m really sick of winter, so fast forwarding to May sounds about right.

I’m anxious for flowers and opening the windows and just enjoying the outdoors.

yes I will say it again, going to Florida three weeks ago really ruined winter for me.
