Erma Bombeck once
observed, “If I had my life to live over again, I would have waxed less
and listened more. Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy and complaining
about the shadows over my feet, I’d have cherished every minute of it and realized
that the wonderment growing inside me was to be my only chance in life to assist
God in a miracle… . I would have cried and laughed less while watching
television … and more while watching life… . There would have been
more ‘I love you’s … more ‘I’m sorry’s … more I’m listening … but
mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute of it …
and never give that minute back until there was nothing left of it.”
