WaltC Posted January 7, 2006 Report Share Posted January 7, 2006 The January 7th selection from Martha Hickman’s Healing After Loss offers some good advice, in my opinion.It may be difficult for some (many?) of us to follow, but I believe it will be worth the effort!“Regret is an appalling waste of energy. You can’t build on it….” Katherine Mansfield.“Of course there are things that we regret. Things we wish we’d done differently…..Surely our loved one has forgiven us. Can we forgive ourselves?”“I’m sorry. Please know that I loved you. I know that you loved me.”I certainly regret that my Jeannie died last April, BUT there’s nothing I can do to change that horrible FACT. So the best that I can do is to honour her memory EVERY day for the rest of my life and NEVER forget our everlasting love for each other.I hope this new year is one in which we can have NO REGRETS and find some comfort in the good memories of our lost loved ones.
