My birthday is in a few days and I find myself looking back at my life. There were so many Things I Regret Taking For Granted When I Was Younger. Perhaps someone reading this blog will take away a valuable lesson from it.
I have always loved the Beatles and felt the song ‘Blackbird’ fit well with what I was feeling as I wrote.
Things I Regret Taking For Granted When I Was Younger
When reflecting back on what I wanted to share a few of the Things I Regret Taking For Granted When I Was Younger They were my moms. I was fortunate to have two mothers. I lost my biological mom in a car accident at the age of 14 and never really told her how much I loved her. One of the last things she probably remembered was that I did not spend her birthday with her. I preferred to be with the family that eventually adopted me, because I did not want to go back to the inner city where we lived. I was a selfish little girl. I regret not telling her I loved her and spending time with her when I had the chance.
Another major regret is when a few years ago my adopted mother was dying of cancer I did not stay by her side and comfort her more. I wished that when she was alive I had thanked her for taking me in and giving me a wonderful life. I always felt loved and took her love for granted. If I wasn’t able to visit she was always understanding and would say “You have your family and I know you’re busy honey”. I miss her calling me honey. I miss calling her for advise. I miss her hugs. I miss her smile. I miss her so much it hurts!
I have been emotional more than usual and wanted to share and speak to my moms. Even though they are not physically here…..I know they are in spirit. I feel their presence every time I see something they loved. I love you both and miss you!
