…are mistakes. Have you ever found yourself writing any of these?”
Have you ever found yourself uttering those words of regret?
Would of you wanted a do-over, knowing what you know now? What could of been the difference it made? Should of you regretted now what you didn’t know then?
I would of been a stay at home mom.
Would of my children been the better for it?
Would of I been the better for it?
I could of cherished the times spent on the front porch with my husband as we sat in our rocking chairs each evening, sharing our day and watching the children play.
I could of left the dishes unwashed.
I could of not taken those times for granted.
I should of realized seconds, moments, days, weeks and years make up a lifetime.
I should of paid more attention to those times.
I should of thanked God for those blessings more than I did – I should of wanted Him to know.
As I ponder on the could ofs, would ofs, and should ofs I know this: It is not too late to do it now.
