~ If i had my live 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..
