Foggy brain today, so just a quote, maybe:

"I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded.  I would have sat on the lawn with my children and not worried about grass stains.  I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn't show soil or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.  When my child kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, "Later. Now get washed up for dinner."  There would have been more I love yous, more I'm sorrys, 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."

 - From Erma Bombeck's "If I Had My Life to Live Over Again"

Yes, God, friends and love and moments, please.

  1. That is an amazing quote. It's easy to forget those things in the chaos of everyday life. Thanks for the reminder. :)
