{30-DC} Day 17: Someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why.

I think I really take the fun out of these challenges with some of my answers. I'm not trying to be difficult, but questions like this one, I just don't know how to answer! Because really--no matter how complicated life gets, I wouldn't trade Phill for all the world, and I wouldn't trade my children for all the world. Really. Ever. So--in keeping with my sort of roundabout way of following the unspoken rules of this challenge, I'm going to say that if I could trade places with myself a few years down the road, I guess that's who I'd pick...because I'm working hard to progress and grow, and because I'm giving it my all, I can only assume (with lots of hope and prayer) that the Me a few years down the road would have some valuable personal growth that I am presently wanting.

Now....if I HAVE to pick someone, and since it would really only be for a day...because I love them and sometimes I feel my empathy isn't enough, I would pick any one of my sisters, or my mom. I'd love to know what it's like to be in their shoes.

Very creative thinking! I have often thought of that switch myself, but in the backwards way--going back in time knowing the Now hindsight...and of course, I always conclude that it would be wrong to do that.
I'd love to know what it's like to be in my sisters' shoes, too. :) I could write a lot of things about that.
