I promised that I would share another one of my thoughts, stories, poems each Sunday. I've collected them for years to use when I teach. If we look at our choices we are making today knowing now what tomorrow would bring, would we make the same choices? Would our focus be on things of import such as family? Friends? I love this following group of thoughts as penned by Irma Bombeck in a letter when she found out she was dying from cancer. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. It brings my thinking up short and helps me "settle" down.
It is entitled: "If I had my life to live over"
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 guess we all have to learn not to sweat the small stuff and to cherish our loved ones and our friends because you never know when our time on this earth is done. Don't worry if we don't have what other people have or if we are liked or not. I think we all have to learn to slow down and stop to smell the roses.
