Life is all about choices. The choices you make today can bite you in the butt tomorrow.
Looking back on my life, I have to admit I made excellent choices. Do you see me complaining?
When I got pregnant with Maria, my boyfriend refused to marry me. Many people told me to have an abortion and move on with my life. Then, when I gave birth, they said to put Maria up for adoption so that I could continue my career in music. I am glad I didn’t listen to these people, because without Maria, I would not have my darling grandchildren today.
When I chose to marry David, people told me to look for someone better. Well, my husband has turned out to be a good provider, a loyal spouse, and an excellent father and grandfather. We all adore David.
When we decided to sell our two condos and buy this house, relatives said we should have bought Aunty Helen’s house instead. I prefer my house, because it is air conditioned and it is bright and cheery. How many homes in Hawaii have air conditioning? Very, very few. When there is vog or high humidity, I simply shut the windows and turn on the air. You don’t see us suffering because of the weather.
So, you see, I am glad that the choices I made in the past have led to the lovely life I have now. I have absolutely no regrets.
