Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

My Life, Today

I found this poem entitled, "If I had my Life to Live Over," written by Erma Bombeck. She wrote this after she found out she was dying of cancer. I would like to modify it a little to write it in the present tense, as how I would like to apply to my own life.

My Life, Today

I will go to bed when I am sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for one day.

I will burn the nice candles before they melt in the attic.

I will talk less and listen more.

I will invite friends over to dinner even if the carpet is stained or the sofa is faded.

I will eat popcorn in the 'good' living room and worry much less about the mess it will make.

I will spend more time with my grandmother, even though she may not know I am there.

I will share more of the responsibility carried by my husband.

I will insist the car windows NOT be rolled up on a summer day just because my hair has just been fixed.

I will sit on the lawn, even if i get grass stains.

I will cry and laugh less while watching television and more while watching life.

I won't buy anything just because it is practical, won't show soil, or is guaranteed to last a lifetime.

I will use the crystal and the silver more often than just on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I will cherish every moment and realize that the amazement growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.

When my kid(s) kiss me impetuously, I will never say, "Later. Now go get washed up for dinner." There will be more "I love you's," and more "I'm sorry's."

But mostly, I will seize every minute...look at it and really see it... See it, live it, and never give it back.
