My “Do Over” Moment

Do you ever wish had a “Do Over” button? At the end of the day, or maybe even in the middle of the day if things are going really bad, you could just reach over and smack a big red button that said “DO OVER”.

It would be so easy right? As I was contemplating my own “Do Over” moment a lot of moments came up….for instance the time in 7th grade when I thought it would be an awesome idea to “color” my hair with purple and red Kool Aide and it stained my skin and I had to wear nice big strips of color on my forehead, ears, and neck for days. Or maybe the time I decided to use tanning oil for the first time and lay out in the middle of the day (I grew up in South Texas middle of the day is like 104) and fell asleep and only the front side of me tanned burned and the entire back half of my body was white. Or maybe all of the auditions I have been on in the last few years….why didn’t they pick me? What could I have done to change their minds?

As memories flooded back so did the feelings that came along with the results of those actions, and when I look at the bigger picture there are moments in my life that I would “Do Over” and others that I’m glad turned out the way they did. Maybe I’m not a big TV star but I have normally colored hair and my body is equally tan 😉 so I guess it could be worse.

  1. I completely unetnsdard how you feel. My brother recently came back from Iraq and I don’t think any of us took photos. I think you get wrapped up in the thought of them leaving that you dont think of photos. There are however always those Happy coming home days! You, your family and your husband are all in my thoughts and prayers! God Bless!

  2. Wow that’s powerful. My do-overs are alayws about photos I didn’t get like when my husband hit a deer and my son got a fat lip. We alayws talk about that time, but I never took a photo (the dentist, getting their hair cut, knee surgery all got photos). My son was too traumatized by this event. When I came to get him, he was just worried if his Daddy would come home, too. All I did was comfort him instead of whipping out my camera. Today, I still wish I had a photo of that, but in hindsight .I would have done it all the same. Even while we’re documenting ever aspect of our lives, it appears that some memories are just better in our heads. Hugs.
