NEVER...EVER...NEVER

Nope, never is not a word I say often. Since most anything can happen, saying never is often just a waste of air. Never is a long time.

Never is all the time we have left. There are things I can say "will never" about...

I will  never be young again.  But I will never be this young again, either.

I will never have another child. But I will never not have a child in my life because I will seek them out.

I will never not love someone or something. I need love.

I will never regret having become a mother which lead to becoming a grandmother.

I will never look back at my life with regret. It changes nothing and makes me sad. No benefit.

I will never intentionally abuse another soul. Ever.

I will never say never about anything in my future that could possibly happen. I have learned that things do happen which I would never have perceived.

Never has a purpose in our language, but for me, it's just a word that keeps me in line. Because I am trying to live the rest of my days without regret. I have only one giant regret in my 63, nearly 64 years and I don't intend to amass anymore. But the road of never is not one I dare to travel frivolously.

NEVER wonder if I care what you think, nor if it matters to anyone what's in your mind, know that it matters and that I care.  Leave a few words, if you'd like so that I never have to wonder what you won't ever do.

  1. I always say that I never say never because if I say never, surely that one thing will happen... You have valid points here! I have some never's of my own - most of which have to do with my age (66 next month...shhhhh....)

    1. Nor have I - though there have been moments when I wondered why He walks with me, why He hasn't thrown in the towel. He is clearly the reason I am still among the living. :-)
      And I will never forget.

  7. I will NEVER lose touch with you. If our blogs go away, we have email, text, phone calls, Skype and cards and letters. I will NEVER not think of you without a smile and a warm fuzzy in my heart. :)

      You know, whenever I need a good hug, I have so many awesome people who must throw them at me! Just look at these comments.
      I do hope that is true, btw, we seem to have so much that we share, in so many areas of life...we were just meant to be friends for life!

  9. While there are some things in life that I will never do, never is a bit limiting isn't it? Loved reading your never list! ♥

    1. Never is limiting and sometimes the things you are certain you will never do, well, somehow you find yourself doing them!
      Thanks.
