If only I could go back 47 years how would I change my life?
* I would never say a harsh word to anyone
* I would never forget to say thank you
* I would seek out the beauty in everything
* I would be a much kinder person
* I would have listened to others more and talked much less
* I would ask my grandmother and grandfather to tell me more stories
* I would have been more understanding of my mother's struggles
* I would laugh much more, cry much less and live my life my way
don't get me wrong I wasn't abused or neglected..... I was simply forgotten.
There were bills to pay and jobs to work so I was forgotten
There were two younger children so I was forgotten
There was a divorce going on so I was forgotten
