Everyone, or almost everyone, looks back at different parts of their life at times. I never met anyone who said they didn’t.

Being at middle age, I have parts of my past that, perhaps, I would have done differently. There are choices that would have had different outcomes,..I don’t know, you just go over things and examine the different variables.Please don’t take this the wrong way: I am loving my life and thank God every day for Jim and my girls.

There are times, though, when things or people from the past pop up and you can only wonder, albeit momentarily,what you would have or should have done differently.

I am just happy that I can look back with a twinkle in my eye at my past, be thankful for the experience, and appreciate the fact that it has helped make me who I am today.
