I always say that “I can’t imagine life without me”. This is a really true statement and feeling. Perhaps we all feel this way, but how can life go on if I weren’t here????
I’m sure I would be panicked as the vacuuming wasn’t done, bills needed to be paid, and things were just not perfect in my world. I have actually thought that if I had everything perfect it was a sign that perhaps I would be leaving this imperfect place that I have here on earth. I actually would reflect on my life and realize that I have had a wonderful life, full of love, fun and great memories.
I have been married for 51 years to the same person who has helped (on a good day) to make my life special. I have lived in the same town all my life, lived in the same house for thirty-five years, have actually worked at the same place for fifty-one years. Boring to most, but to me, pretty amazing.
I have had such fabulous memories with both friends and family. I have six awesome grandchildren that I would hug so hard they couldn’t possibly forget me. I would hope that I had established a good foundation for my children to carry on without me. My life has certainly been a journey only created and shared by those around me.
My family keeps me extremely busy and for that I am thankful for that. I have them all close and consider myself very fortunate to be able to share in sports, dance recitals, concerts, you name it. I have had such wonderful experiences, simple by some standards, but fully wonderful to me.
If I were to live my life over again sure I think I would probably do things just the way they are only I would get my priorities in order at a much younger age. You see, cleaning and stuff like that is just not as important as doing things with friends and/or family.
I have been able to get an education, snag a couple of my dreams, one of them being owning a cottage, having children and having the greatest grandchildren in the world.
If I were to die today I would have to say I am fulfilled and happy, and still couldn’t imagine life without me!!!!
