Do You Ever.....?

Do you ever wish you could know what your unborn child will be like in 5 years?

Do you ever wish people wouldn't always give you their opinion?

Do you ever forget to thank God for the 'little things' in life?

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to live in a foreign country?  And raise your children there?

Do you ever think what it would be like if someone you were close to that has passed away, was still here and able to see how much you've grown and the things you've done in your life?

Do you ever think about things like this?  Sometimes I just ponder over things like these..knowing some I can change..and some I can't..some I can do..and some I can't.  If that makes sense.

I DO wonder what my little girl will be like.  Not only when she's born (like will she have alot of hair..and will it be RED?)..but later on when she starts school. 

I DO wish that sometimes people wouldn't always be so free to give me their opinions on things..especially when I don't ASK for their opinion in the first place! 

I DO forget to thank God for the little things in life..and this IS something I CAN change. 

I not only wonder what it would be like to live in a foreign country..but HOW much differently would me and my family's daily life be different?  I know we wouldn't be frequenting Walmart on a weekly basis! 

And lastly..I DO wonder what it would be like if my GRANDPA were still living.  What would he think of Damon?  And especially now..what would he think of me having a baby girl?  What would he nickname her?  He always had a way of nicknaming the kids in the family..it was precious.  I find myself wondering this ALOT.

What do YOU think about?



  1. You'll never know just how often I think of these sorts of things. I believe that sometimes we need these deep thoughts. They ground us and give us perspective. And many times they're comforting, too. :)


I love hearing your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
