    Just Be Nicer

    Thank goodness, I don't have a lot of regrets.  I have had a lot of good things happen to me in my life.  However, when I was younger I partied way too much and didn't treat people as well as I should have.  I definitely would have been nicer to and more...

    There Are Many Things I'd Like to Do Over Again..

    but the big one that comes to mind first is my wedding to my current wife.  It was a wonderful day, story book wedding.  Everything went great that day.  A very happy day and i even keep one of wedding photos on my desk at work to remind me of it.

    Putting my children aside, I would have married someone else.  I've had many life experiences, both good and bad, who have made me who I am, and I would not do those over (although some I wish I could forget).  I basically like the person I am today!  I want a...

    I would want to go back the day before My Daddy died and tell I love him instead of arguing with him. Don't say words that you can't take back. You may live to regret it.
