i would have gone ahead and become a blue angels pilot, instead of being obedient to my father who told me the military is too dangerous for a woman..due to the obvious sexual scandals.

I am sure your dad was doing what dads do...looking out for his daughter.


A few years ago I took my two youngest, twins, a boy and a girl, to see the Blue Angels in Duluth. My son was anxious to go but my daughter not very much. I told her if she would go it would be something she would never forget. A solo pilot put on one hell of a show in a F16 and than landed and taxied to right in front of us. We were in the front row. He climbed out, his crew saluted him, he was tall, ramrod straight, impressive flight uniform, aviator sunglasses. Right out of Hollywood. The announcer said the pilot would give autographs and people could line up in front of him. My daughter, I'll call her Janice, tried to play it cool, (she was that age). I watched out of the corner of my eye, pretty soon, "Dad, can I go get his autograph?" "Sure," I said, feeling so happy inside.

I would have gone to college at 18 instead of 38.

I would have pursued a profession that made me glad to be alive instead of one that paid the bills.

I would have bought myself flowers, taken myself out to dinner, taken myself on vacation and bought myself Victoria's Secrets instead of waiting for someone else to.

If I knew then what I know now, I would have encouraged my late husband to take a job in the chemical engineering field, rather than the nuclear engineering field. He died of leukemia at 43 after 23 years as a nuke.

Speaking of lost love, I should have told my wife I loved her every single day. I should have told her how special she was and how great it was to have someone so lovely in my life. Now the Lord has my special angel.

I can't read all of these "do overs"; it is too depressing. Why have regrets? I have NO regrets; each one of my decisions/choices made me who I am today. I went into nurses training right out of high school; worked as a nurse for a couple of years, then went back to school to be a Special Ed teacher. I married a wonderful man (at the time) the semester before my student teaching, left the state with my new husband and never completed my education degree. I worked in the travel industry and as a portrait photographer while raising 4 amazing kids, then returned to get my teaching certificate. Now I am teaching and pursuing my educational psychology degree. Again, I ask, why would anybody ever want a "do over"?

I would 'show' my love more. And I would have started my path to holiness long before I did. This path is a constant battle with satan trying and often

suceedding in trying to trip us! I feel like I wasted so much time loving myself and all that God gave me rather than making my focus on Him. But I

realize I am a prodigal daughter and I am grateful that I woke up, at all! The heart of The Lord is mercy! I am so grateful for that and will try to make

amends for the rest of my life...

I would have taken the opportunity that was offered to start a career in Florida instead of blindly following what my husband said was best. Let's just say it began a pattern and tonight I'm in a very different place than I imagined I'dbe.

I with you, Joan. Even the mistakes taught valuable lessons about life and while they may hurt, I'm grateful for them. No do overs. Onwards and upwards.

I agree. Everyone has what if's and while it may be entetaining(or painful) to linger in those lines of thoughts, its mainly distracting. Life has happened and I prefer to live in the present. Today is also full of what if's.

No "do overs" for me. It does not matter who broke my heart. What matters is who made me smile again. heart
