As someone in the Autumn of her life, there is quite a bit for me to look back and reflect on.
Time is a great healer, or so the saying goes.
Though regrets can be hard to live with.
Wisdom seems to be an advantage of growing older – some compensation perhaps for the gradual loss of other functions or faculties?
Or is it just seeing through the lens of history and experience that gives us a fresh perspective which seems wise?
Maybe it’s seeing with God’s eyes as He opens our vision to His perspective rather than our own.
Hindsight is a great teacher.
Here are a couple of mini Tuesday tidbits to share with you on this subject:
I wish I knew then
what I know now
I could have been a better friend
wife and mother somehow
discerning and wise
knowing bad from good
at least in my own eyes
Hindsight is invaluable
for the insight it imparts
though a residue of regret
may linger in our hearts
maybe I can learn to start
something new today
in accepting it wisdom
without regrets holding sway
