If I had my life to live over

I know I've heard or read this essay by Erma Bombeck before... I got it in my email again today, and really like it.

If I Had My Life To Live Over - by Erma Bombeck
(written after she found out she was dying from cancer.)

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.

I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.

I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.
