How I did it: I have learned from my mistakes. I have tried to do things better. I have, in turn, tried to pass those lessons on to the children that were that were awarded me (as I like to think of them). I must say that the ones that were born to me, my eldest I should say, that has got the short end of the stick, so-to-speak, because I was so young and such a HUGE idiot when I had the opportunity to have the biggest influence on her. I still had so many lessons to learn. I am ashamed to say that they have to learn more from my hindsight more then my foresight. I am happy to report that the older I get the more intelligent I have become. At least I prefer to think so. By raising emotionally healthy and contributing members of society do we not leave things better than we found them? God grant us all that luxury, please. Read how I did it… 4 years ago
She found me after all this time.
She needed me.
I needed her.
Regardless of all that happened then…
or of all that has happened since then…
it did not change the fact that we needed each other now
in order to bring peace to our hearts, finally.
How awesome is it that we were able to do just that? 5 years ago
However, because of certain things that have occurred in my life lately I have chosen to put it back on my list of goals. I have been too wrapped up in getting the “things” done in my life and have neglected the most important “to-do” list of all. Telling the people around me how wonderful they are and how much they mean to me. Playing with my youngest daughter and grandson. Being there to listen when my oldest needs me. Taking the time to commit random acts of kindness for strangers. Weeding my brother’s front garden because their house is on the market and they have already moved t Dallas. Playing with my pets. Telling my parents thank you. I want to remember that whatever I don’t get done today I can always pick up tomorrow. It’s only by forgetting to do the things that I just mentioned that I’ll have failed. 5 years ago
