30 Day Challenge - Day 19

Today's question is certainly a doozie.  What is the biggest regret in my life?

Well, I don't really regret much of anything in my life.  I know you are thinking "Yeah right!  Everyone regrets something!"  Certainly there are things in my life that I look back on now and think "Good grief, what was I thinking?!", but regret is a strong word.

I guess if I picked one point in my life, where "regret" could possibly be used, it would have to be marrying my ex-husband.  But, every choice in my life has brought me to the place I am now.  The decision to marry my ex-husband was perhaps not the wisest.  We were not good for each other by any stretch of the imagination.  It was truly the worst time of my life.  But so many good things came from the chain of events during that time.  Had I not married him, I wouldn't have my gorgeous, sweet little Flower.  I wouldn't have moved to Canyon.  I wouldn't have realized who I am as an individual, and how strong I really could be.  I wouldn't have moved in with my parents.  If I hadn't moved in with my parents, then Barb Wire Man and I wouldn't have become such good friends and eventually fallen in love.  If I hadn't fallen in love with Mike, we wouldn't have this amazing family and life that we have now.

Don't get me wrong!  I'm certainly not happy with some of the things I have done or said in my life.  I've had my fair share of moments where I stop and wonder what in the h-e-double-hockey sticks made me think that was a good idea.  But, nothing in this life happens by chance.  Ever.

I doubt I'll be on much today.  Last night was the I bet I take a nap later!  
Be blessed everyone!
