Sometimes, for years after a big decision, you I question yourself myself.

Did I make the right decision?

Should we have more kids?

Will I ever make new friends?

Why don’t I have the right clothes?

Do we have enough money?

Will I ever stop missing my old friends?

Why can’t I fit into the clothes I have?

Should we have moved?

Will I ever be able to spend time with the new friends I’ve made?

Do I look okay?

Should we have stayed?

Do I look old?

Should I have handled that differently?

Will we ever be able to move again?

Should I have said that?

Will I ever stop questioning myself?

Did I do the right thing?

Is the grass really greener?

Why isn’t my grass green anymore?

What if…?

When will…?

Why can’t…?

Where is…?

And then, sometimes if you’re lucky, when you least expect it, whether you’re listening or not, you get a message. Like when you’re driving home on a Sunday when you’ve been feeling sorry for yourself because you miss your old church in your old city and you don’t like the way you look because you have nothing to wear and more important things to do with your time and money than spend it on yourself anyway and feeling a little lonely even though you’re surrounded by your beautiful family so how could you even begin to feel sorry for yourself you ungrateful wench why can’t you just be thankful and live in the moment and just BE and blah blah blah and what’s that on the radio?

A song I’ve heard a hundred times before but never really listened to. And then there it is. A message.

I’d quote the lyrics, but that’s a big no-no, so you can either take my word for it or listen and watch at Phillip Phillips’ website (gotta give credit where credit’s due).

A little cold today. #brrr #beach I'm gonna Momma Hen you all for a minute with a gentle reminder that giving kids access to social media accounts -- whether theirs or yours, whether they're "old enough" or not -- without any guidance or oversight is not so different from letting your kid drive a car on the highway without any training. The damage may not be physical, and with a little luck there wont be any damage at all, but...images seen cannot be unseen, words said cannot be unsaid, things heard cannot be unheard. Birthdays are meant to be celebrated, even when it's back to school after an extended break. #12 My #snowbird. She loves this weather and she loves the Sunday comics. #SNOW! Excited kids, more than forecast! #ncweather #ncwx #snow
