"just a general question.. has your life turned out the way you wanted.yes, and no. i wanted to spend the rest of my life with my best friend and husband/father of my three kids. but, he died instead. but, god gave me another husband, who, not yet my best friend, is becoming so and i am so blessed that he puts up with me. he is the well loved papa to our grandkids, and forming good relationships with my grown children/children-in-law. i would laugh more, fret less, if i relived my early years (i was so serious---never will forget the day my eldest told me that she didn't realize i could cut up & be silly...which i was being at the time she made that comment...ouch!) what are some things that make you happy. time with children/grandchildren. time with husband exploring my new home (from texas to new england--now that's a switch!). spending time in places, some beyond my comprehension, trying to help. travelling. ice cream. cool, beautiful days such as today with a nice breeze blowing. knowing that i am loved by the one who created me.what are some things you would like to see change. drop of about 75 pounds of weight (would help if i left the new england ice cream alone!). gain patience. did you get what you wanted in life..yes, even if it doesn't look like i thought it would. how did you get the things you wanted. hard work, frugal spending, saving. mercy. how do you feel as a person? blessed. happy. content. are you happy with your life in all aspects" pretty much....would be nice to live in texas again, but that's not my decision...who knows where we'll end up next!
