My Regrets....

You know that we all have them....the shoulda, woulda, coulda things that we wish we would have done. The small moments of life that we gave up because we just don't have time for or we are just to "busy" to get around to taking care of. I have many, many of these; to many to count. I am ashamed to even think about counting.

1. I regret not telling the people that I love that I love them everyday.
2. I regret not spending more time with my mom before she died. It was such an unexpected and unforeseen event. (More about this later.)
3. I regret not really being in the moment (period).

House Guest

We have had a house guest (my brother-in-law from Mexico) for about two weeks and early tomorrow morning he will be leaving. He was suppose to be staying, I thought, for a few months; he is taking off a semester from college. At first I wasn't sure how it would work out....Living in a small house and an added person..but it has been okay. I was kind of surprised that he would want to stay with us seeing as we didn't have an extra room I told my husband if wanted to sleep on the couch then it was fine with me (after all my brother always sleeps there when he is here with no complaints). I am very sure that my girls will be missing him very soon. They get attached so easily. I hope he has a safe trip home.

Out of the mouths of babes

Last Sunday at lunch I was telling my husband that they would be taking directory pictures at the church soon and wanted to know if he would be interested in getting an appointment. Free picture and all. He said yes and my oldest daughter made this lovely comment........Mommy why does God need a picture of us??? He already knows what we look like!!
