…shocker, I know. Just saying the words “It seems like yesterday” adds ten years to my age, but what can I say? It seems like yesterday.
Which is why I think it is so important to live each day to the fullest. I don’t want to look back and wish for college days or high school days or any days with the thoughts of “I wish I had _________.” I want to look back at them and say “I’m glad I did _________.”
Ok, so I get tired and cranky and caught up in the endless to-dos many days. And I can’t say that I don’t have some regrets about the past. But I CAN say that I have many more memories than regrets. God has blessed me with a full life and tons of opportunities, big and small.
(And, just in case you were wondering, I don’t EVER wish I was high school or college age again. Loved it then; moved on; the end.) I love my life RIGHT NOW.
Ok, so all this college age talk came about because my little niece girl growed up and became a big niece girl. And she is going away to college.
Time has come quickly upon us, and we realized that we must do a girl’s night before she leaves. So’s we did. She popped over Tuesday night and we talked and ate food and watched chick flicks and stayed up too late.
Do I wish I had had her over more this past year and a half? Sure. Life has kind of gotten crazy, and I haven’t had people over much. Am I glad we grabbed the opportunity to make a memory before she left? Definitely. Opportunities come and go. We grab some; we lose some. Such is life. Life is good.
