HUG Corner - Thought for the week - 3/20
From "Healing After Loss." Martha Whitmore Hickman
Regret is an appalling waste of energy. You can't build on it. It is only for wallowing in.
Of course there are things we regret. Things we wish we'd done differently. Even where there has been time to say all the appropriate things, images will flash in our minds that we'd give a lot to be able to change. Surely our loved has forgiven us. Can we forgive ourselves?
I'm sorry. Please know that I loved you. I know that you loved me.
"Something within me is waking from long sleep, and I want to live and move again. Some zest is returning to me, some immense gratefulness for those who love me, some strong wish to love them also. I am full of thanks for life. I have not told myself to be thankful. I just am so."
"There is a gravitational pull, an endless current which we do not recognize which draws us beyond all things and people, but at the same time more deeply and freely into them."
"In search of my mother's garden, I found my own."
