If I could go back in time and relive one day, I would just relive it and not change a thing. While my life has not been the greatest and has had many tragic and unhappy times, I wouldn't change any of them because they all contributed to who I am today, and that's someone I'm pretty proud to be
The day I would live over again would be the day of Christmas of my 12th year. It was probably the happiest Christmas that I ever had. My parents had been separated for years, and when I was 12 my Mom was living with a man, John. His son and Mother also lived with us.
I got lots of nice gifts, including a Budgie, but it wasn't the gifts that made it special. It was just a happy day with a happy family and at that time John was not drinking and he was like a stepfather to me, and his Mom was more like a "grandmother" to me than my own was. That was the closest I ever got to having a "normal' family during my childhood.
Unforuntately that evening he chose to fall off the wagon and then everything fell apart after that. I think that was the last time I actually enjoyed Christmas. But even still, I would live the day over again.
