Time to CONFESS... Friday




It's Friday... time to confess...

  *It has been a long LONG time since my last confession

* I have missed it

* I like reading other peoples confessions... They make me laugh!

* I brought the cat in.. when the Mr finds out I am DEAD!

* Hope HE doesn't read this!

* I need to get stronger.. she was there at the back door looking at me with those sweet little eyes and I just caved... I am in so much trouble!

* She is a barn cat.. NOT a house cat... and this could be my last confession!

* I will miss reading every ones confessions :(

* If I wind up dead the Mr. did it! I am buried in the back yard.. Please put flower out there oh and if we get a pig all of sudden that is how he got rid of me! YUCK! 

* I watch to much BONES... Usually when I am eating... I think I have issues...

* I need to go take care of the animals.. It is COLD outside and MY bed is warm with the cat all snugly! We agree I am dead but SHE thinks it is worth it!

* This is very weird since I have NEVER been a cat person... but she is cute and sweet and I have got to get a backbone when it comes to the animals!

* The rooster has been crowing for hours NOW and if I don't let him and the girls out soon I will have hell to pay!

* I hate the cold!

Well that is my confession today... come play along and link up!Link up and confess!
 

No Regrets?!?

Have you ever thought about what the above words mean? I had a " AH HA" moment the other day over just those words and found it very... frustrating, eye opening moment I guess. I was talking to the Mr. and we were having one of those moments when you are talking about nothing but then it gets serious real quick.
 (Kind of like driving down the road enjoying the scenery and BLAMO  you find yourself hit head on, and you sit back and wonder" how the heck did that happen?"  I was talking about
  "IF"
Like "If I were young again what I would do differently?"
  Regrets, things I wish I could take back or change so the outcome would be different. And I turn to him and ask"What regrets do you have honey?" And the Mr. replys, 
"None".
 Seriously that was his answer! NONE!!! Well because I have been hurt by some not so great choices throughout our 13 years together  I was pissed angry, hurt and astonished that he would say such a thing. I mean doesn't  EVERYONE have regrets?

  So as I felt the temperature of the car change..
 Mainly mine!

 I started thinking about his answer which was simply, "If I hadn't done, been or traveled down the road I have I wouldn't be here, in this time, this place".  I thought about that answer for a couple of days and in doing so I realized, Isn't that what it is all about? Wasn't HIS answer the correct one?

GROWTH
 The HARD kind, the kind that makes you wish you could just get through it. 

 Break through and see the sun shinning down on you again.

 It is the kind that makes you STRONG when the whole world seems to be crumbling around you. When you have to say goodbye to something or someone you love, when you have to find that inner strength to keep walking even though you are tired or worn. 

Could you imagine how BORING our lives would be if every time we had a regret we could just rewind, go back or  start over. What would you have missed out on?What lesson would you have NOT learned? 
What growth would have escaped YOU?
 So as much as wish I had never hurt someone, or lied, or let someone (including myself) down I am so GRATEFUL for the lessons I have learned. For the person I am becoming because of those lessons.
 So I guess I finally get it... 
No regrets just lessons LEARNED...  not having that opportunity to me would be the biggest regret I think we could ever have.
