If I only knew then what I know now....

I would have said more I love You's to my Brother Arnold.
~~~I lost him to cancer
I would have picked up every penny that I found.
~~~They would be worth thousands
I would have not blown a full ride for a joy ride.
~~~Education is more valuable than a boy at 18
I would have stood up to those who tried to tear me down.
~~~Would have built my character much earlier
I would have understood that Karma is alive and well.
~~~I wasted time focusing on others
I would have learned to love myself much earlier in life.
~~~Would have saved years of questioning
I would have remained in church all of these years.
~~~I would know the bible better
I would have worked smarter not harder.
~~~I would have gotten off the treadmill much earlier

If I only knew then what I know now, I would not be the person I am today. Life has a strange way of taking us through things to build us up and to ready us for today. Sometimes it's pain, sorrow and sometimes it's regret. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow may never come so embrace your TODAY! It is NEVER too late. I thank God I didn't know then what I know now, for I surely would have missed the lesson.


  1. awwe mommy. well i'm glad you learned so you can show me and brittany what you learned and teach us. i love you! =)

  2. All the things that you did not know then led you to exactly where you are know...exactly where you are supposed to be.

  3. This is entirely true. I have told my husband Pat a billion times, if I had to live through it all again, I would take every bruise just to be where I am today. GOD puts obstacles in our path, some to change our direction and some to show us how to survive struggles. You are a beautiful human being with so much to teach those smart enough to listen to you...thank you for being my friend!

  4. Love it! One day, I may have to copy the concept, and share my own learned lessons. Thank you for sharing.
