Day 224 - Monday 11th August

"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, I used everything you gave me" - Erna Bomback

I think this is a really lovely quote and that it is pretty well sums up the way I like to live my life. I think life is short and that you must make the most of it. Don’t get to the end of your life with regrets because you didn’t do the things that you really wanted to do but just did not have the courage or knowledge to achieve them.
This doesn’t mean that you should be selfish and do things that don’t take into consideration those around you, but at the same time, you cannot live your life for others. Family life has to be about compromise.
I hope that when my time comes, I have lived a long and happy life and that I have achieved everything that I wanted and that I am as happy on that day as I am today or Zoe is with her Night Garden umbrella.
