March 28, 2009 – Last year, I asked Mom (Helen) if she had any regrets. She said
I have no real regrets yet. But I worry about the regrets that I might have later: a great quilt idea that I never try; a good friend that I neglect to call until too late; an opportunity that I think will wait for me, but doesn’t.
Perhaps I should take a moment right now, to nip a future regret in the bud. Or, perhaps there will be a better time tomorrow. Today is already full of things I need to care for.
Life is always full of those loose threads.
