"and the best thing you've ever done for me

"The best thing you've ever done for me, is to help me take my life less seriously - It's only life after all"

No regrets -

Last night John and I had this conversation about a friend of his who has a bunch of money in his 401K. He told me about the friend, and this is what followed:

Me: That makes me kind of sick.
John: Why?
Me: I just wish we had made some different choices.
John: Well, I could have gone on through college instead of joining the Army, and now I would be making more money than I am. And you could have gotten a degree in something other than education and could be making more money than you are. But then we wouldn't be together. And we wouldn't have had our little girl.
Me: /feels stupid and ungrateful

So let that be my pledge today - to feel grateful for what I have and to stop feeling so regretful all the time.
