What If I'd Never Met You?


~ I wouldn’t have all these birthday surprises and now not know what to do with them.

~ I might never have heard the “men-do-and-be” concept. You and your insight!

~ I’d never have become adequately proficient on the piano/keyboard and learned to play by guitar chords!

~ I’d not have met Todd and Sam. Nor would I have thrown Barbie dolls in the front yard!

~ I might not have a Game Plan for rolling with the punches.

~ I’d more than likely not have made a best friend and lost the same best friend within a year.

~ I would NEVER have broken and entered! And in the windy, downpouring rain to boot!

~ I'd never have been in a gang. Or a band.

~ I’d probably have had a meltdown Labor Day weekend. (Oh wait, I did anyway, didn’t I!)

~ I would not have had a meltdown Labor Day weekend.

~ I’d not have dug through the McDonald’s toy freebies bin at St Vincent DePaul and Goodwill!

~ I’d not have a best friend this very day that I trust with my life—with my child’s life even.

~ I’d not have understood what you say about stars splitting and coming back together.

~ I'd have thought I was the only weird-in-a-good-way freak out there.

~ I would have forgotten that it really is my job to fight ignorance.

~ I’d weigh 123 instead of 103.

~ I’d have been really annoyed by the tennis ball call from the wall.

~ I would have died in your basement bedroom. Most certainly. God and you, what a team.

~ I would never have touched anyone else’s feet, other than my child’s. Ever.

~ I doubt I would ever have heard of Clem Snide. Or met another adult who likes Hanson.

~ I wouldn't have missed missing the Steelers beat the Browns.

~ I wouldn't have forgotten to record Little Big Town on Crossroads.

~ I might not have listened to hours of metal music Sat night/Sun morning. And I did that for why?! Oh yeah, good company.

~ I would never have known a superhero, nor been one.

Golly, such significance in a bunch of words. Meaningless events to most of you, but if you recognize yourself in one, you might understand the turning point. And maybe not. I do anyway. And this is my space.

What if I never met you? Me, you. Got any of your own to add here? You can be anonymous and that'll add to the game--I can guess! (Okay, so email me, you blog-scaredy cats. :)

-- I wouldn't have learned a lot of things about myself and learned to be OK with them.

2.) I wouldn't have someone that I trusted so completely with my children.

. . . I wouldn't have someone who completely understands how hard it is to "just say no". Even if the water is perfect, but you know in the end it will burn.

JAS - Yeah, I can! But I'm not a runner! I'm tellin ya.

JDR - You are A-OK in my book. I need to be okay with myself again, too. You've now got me thinking about that.

2) Loving someone else's children like they are your own is an unexpected blessing.

daisy - Those darn bubbles! So misleading and deceiving. As JDR once told me so simply, but with more impact than he realized...right is right. I keep telling myself that. But you are correct, I understand how difficult that is! Say no and mean it.

Wow! I recognize some of these but others seem to have an interesting story to it.
And this Diann Hanes sounds interesting but suspicious!
