    I have heard this before but here it is confirmed. No one every lies on their deathbed and says, "I wish I spent more time at the office." I live a pretty simple life and I don't fret over things I can't control. I don't fuss over my house (though maybe I should fuss a little more than I do) and I try to ignore the negative people and thoroughly enjoy the good people in my life.

    If you had to evaluate your life up until now, how would you feel about how you've lived your life so far?

    I have several regrets over my single parent/child raising years. But there's not much I can do about it now. I have apologized to my children for the times I lost my temper due to stress. Honestly, I don't feel I was always a good parent but I sure did try my hardest and did what I thought was right at that time. Hindsight is 20/20, isn't it? :( I am a very different person now than I was several years ago. And I like myself better now. :eek:

    Here is a good read. Take notes.........

    Kids, no matter what, make sure they understand that they are loved.

    Well , I wish I could of taught my son more..! Don't get me wrong , he's one hell of a man..! I never made him do things he had no interests in..! He's his own thinker with an open minded ness that make's me beam with pride..!

    That would be my biggest regret , the adventurous spirit I lay upon him..! I miss him dearly..! We do contact each other seval times a week via "Face. Book and phone" but not in the flesh..! :)

    Dan, I tell them all the time.

    But this thread is more than just about our children. It's about how we are living our lives and what we are getting out of life and giving to those around us.
