Today's Question:  

If you could go back in time 10 years would you change anything/warn yourself of things to come?

There are a lot of things in my life I wish I had done differently.  But would I go back and time and change things so that my life now could be 'better'?

I hadn't intended for this post to have religious overtones, but in Matthew 8:36 of the KJV, it reads:  "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"

Yes, it would be nice to drive a car that was younger than my oldest child.  Yes, it would be nice to fly to Scotland for vacation (yes, I am obsessed).  Yes, it would be nice to have been able to buy a house before I was 50.

But what if I had all those things, but did not have my family?  NO THANK YOU.


  1. Brave post! Loved the bold, "No Thankyou" :)

    1. Thanks, Shalzz! Yeah, I'm all "Mama Bear" when it comes to my family and friends. :O)

  2. I am glad you have a life you are happy many of us waste so much time trying to find that "perfect" life forgetting we're living it.

  3. Having a family is divine .

    Having gone back 10 yrs , I would have taken more care of my health.
