If I Could Have Just One More Day

What if I could have just one more day with my mom before Alzheimer's? If I could have just one more day, I would look through family pictures with her instead of telling her she was making a mess. If I could have just one more day, I would tell her how in love I was with a boy named Reid. If I could have just one more day, I would tell her that she is the reason I love Christ. If I could have just one more day, I would help more around the house. If I could have just one more day, I would ask if she felt a void in her life before we got Toby. If I could have just one more day, I would thank her for loving me even when I talked back. If I could have just one more day, I would make sure she wasn't the one filming all our home videos. If I could have just one more day, I would tell her how beautiful she is. If I could have just one more day, I would ask her to write a diary of her thoughts on life. If I could have just one more day, I would listen to her advice instead of rolling my eyes. If I could have just one more day, I would ask her what her favorite childhood memory was. If I could have just one more day, I would make sure that she gave a little more to herself and less to me. If I could have just one more day, I would teach her how to make homemade lasagna. If I could have just one more day, I would ask what family name she would want me to pass onto my child someday. If I could have just one more day, I would ask what she fears most. If I could have just one more day, I would share my joy of marriage. If I could have just one more day, I would ask her to tell me more stories of my Papa. If I could have just one more day, I would thank her for praying for my future husband. If I could have just one more day...
