Chapter 3: How I wish I had …
Regrets are sorrows over events that are now beyond my control to change. If I could have known that the immediate future would so drastically change, I would have spoken or done something differently. Another “good-by”, “I love you”, or “I’m sorry” are phrases I want to say more often than I do.
I think regrets are one of those things that can best be put in true perspective when I write them down. Taking the time to write down regrets whether in a list or even a letter can bring a regret into black and white. While it may make it seem more real, it also puts the regret into words and brings a balance to emotional thoughts. Writing may bring clarity to what it is I regret.
Chapter 10: How do I go on?
“How do I go on?” won’t be the last question you ask. Wrestling with God is a way for me to describe how God and I discuss my questions. I wrestle with God until He blesses me with an answer (Genesis 32: 22-26).
“How do I go on?” I go on because that is where the one that I love is. He is no longer ‘back there’ or ‘back here’. He has gone on. Even memories are here in the present. They are present with me. The person is – frozen – in time. Frozen in the time we had together and that is what makes up my ‘present’ with him. When I take those first toddling steps forward, I go toward where he now lives.
