I was just too busy.

Disclosure:  This post is a part of the Blog Dare I am participating in for 2014. Come join us at BloggyMoms!

Life goes by too fast to have regrets.  Every day, I do my best to live it to the fullest.  That does not mean that I go sky diving, or do other crazy things like that.  My way of living life to the fullest is by spending my time with my family.  My time is spent in person or talking on the phone!

I call my mom several times each day to check in on her and on my grandma.  They live in a not so great area of a city that is about 45 minutes from me.  Since the death of my daddy, Mom has lived with Grandma.  I freely admit that my mom is one of my best friends.  (She shares that title with Chefy.)  We enjoy just running our mouths and saying, "I love you."  My brother works a few blocks from where Mom lives, so he checks in on them and we talk every week.  I talk to the rest of my family that much or more.  I feel blessed.

Chefy, Kat and I spend our evenings together and we try to eat together every night.  That time is important to us, so we can grow together as a family.  Kat will be grown and gone soon enough.  I cherish every minute with her.  I have truly been able to get to know my daughter, and my hubby.  My time with them is spent without regret.  I want no what ifs.  I never want to say, I was just too busy.

Enjoy your family while you can.  No one is promised tomorrow.  That has been proven to me many times over the years.  Live life to the fullest!

Live Well, Laugh Often and Love Much.  Never say, I was just too busy!
