In Hospice, I have been with many families through the loss of a loved one. I understand the emotional and spiritual impact a death brings.
I have witnessed families who lived their lives as best they could and when the end came, there was no regret, only sadness at parting.
I have witnessed families whose lives and interactions left a lot to be desired. At the end it only brought more sorrow and lots of regret.
Two observations…two extremes…somewhere in between, as close to the “no regret” observation as one can get, should be the goal to living and interacting.
“Words and actions…said or done should not be a harvest of regret later on
