Never Have I Ever. You stick to your guns – now tell us about what. What is something you’ve never done but want to. What’s something you’ve never done and won’t budge on?
Never have I ever.....
Despite having this stupid disease, most of the things I have wanted to do with my life, I've actually done. I have worked writing, and in ministry. I have raised two kids to adulthood, and they are turning out to be quite amazing adults. And I am at last in a relationship with the most wonderful man I have ever known, who really does seem to love me just as me. I even took my kids on an overseas holiday once (we had a cruise to Villa, Noumea, and Lifou a few years ago.)
So short of a childhood dream of going to Disneyland, and of seeing snow, all of the things I ever wanted, I have had.
Is life perfect? No, I have this (insert rude words here) disease. I don't have the energy to keep up with my housework. I do have to be incredibly careful of my budget. But do I have any serious regrets about the things I haven't done and now can't do? Not at all.
The other side of the question? What have I never done, and never will do? Give up my Christian faith; give up on my kids; anything else? I don't like to say "never". When I say "never" God has a way of proving me wrong.
