Have you ever?

Have you ever wondered what life would have been like if you’d married your first crush?
Have you ever wondered if you never married, never had children what would your life be like?
Have you ever done something super wild, out of the norm that would totally freak your family out of they knew?
Have you ever wished a relative would go away just so you wouldn’t have to deal with them anymore? I mean go away forever (or at least a very long time and far, far away).
Have you ever wondered what you would be like if you had been born a boy? Would you have been a better man?
Have you ever thought how you might govern or rule your city if given the chance? What changes would you make?
Have you ever wished to go back in time to right a wrong or relive a moment?
Have you ever wanted to just go away and leave it all…and then your little one comes along with hugs and “I love you mommy” and the thought becomes horrific and preposterous.
Have you ever wished upon a star and it came true.
Have you ever wondered what life holds in store for your children? Your grandchildren? Will this be a better planet? A better country?
Have you ever wanted to go back to a simpler time – when shops closed on Sunday so all could devote the time to church and/or family, when you could let your kids play outside with no fear?
Have you ever stopped on your way to work to just take in the miracle of a glorious morning and give thanks for all your blessings.
Have you ever thrown your fears to the wind to do something and found it was the best thing you ever did?
Have you? Ever?

I don't have children, but I do wonder about a lot of these others. :) Great post!

That was an awesome post and to answer some of your questions...yes I have wished a relative would go away, I'm thankful I didn't marry my first crush and I've thought about running away and change my mind for a hug.

Some very poignant words. I had to wipe tears away after the "I love you Mommy." And, yes, I have.
