Purple Hat

Passing the Purple Hat to You 
 honour of women's history month and in memory of Erma Bombeck  who lost her fight with cancer. Pass this on to five women that you want watched  over.. If you don't know five women to pass this on to, one will do just  fine. 

IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER - by Erma  Bombeck

(written after she found out she was dying from  cancer).

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of  pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for  the day.

I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose  before it melted in storage.

I would have talked less and listened  more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet  was stained, or the sofa faded.

I would have eaten the popcorn in  the 'good' living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone  wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.

I would have taken the time  to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.

I would have  shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.

I would  never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my  hair had just been teased and sprayed.

I would have sat on the lawn  with my grass stains.

I would have cried and laughed less while watching  television and more while watching life.

I would never have bought  anything just because it was practical, wouldn't show soil, or was  guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Instead of wishing away nine months  of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment and realized that the  wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a  miracle..

When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have  said, 'Later... Now go get washed up for dinner.' There would have been more  'I love you's, more 'I'm sorry's.' 

But mostly, given another shot  at life, I would seize every minute; look at it and really see it; live it  and never give it back.. STOP SWEATING THE SMALL STUFF!

Don't  worry about who doesn't like you, who has more, or who's doing what 
Instead, let's cherish the relationships we have with those who do love  us...

If you don't mind, send this on to all the women you are grateful  to have as friends.
Maybe we should all grab that purple hat earlier.

Please send this to five phenomenal women today in celebration of  Beautiful Women's Month.
If you do, something good will happen--you will boost  another woman's self esteem.
IN MEMORY .. . .. .. ...
These are the colours that represent the different  cancers.

All you are asked to do is keep this circulating, even if  it's to one more person, in memory of anyone you know who has been struck by  cancer.
A Candle Loses Nothing by Lighting Another  Candle.
Please Keep The Candle Going!
