No Regrets

A young father in our ward died last week. He had a 6-month old baby. Andrew learned in Elder's Quorom (Priesthood) that this young father was probably one of the less-active members in the Church. Andrew told me that in Priesthood, they talked for a little while about always being prepared. Have we done all that we can do? As visiting and home teachers, have we visited our families, especially the less-active members? We never know when someone is going to leave this life.

We watched the movie "Love Happens" over the weekend. The guy had lived for 5 years with the feeling that he had killed his wife in a car accident that happened during an argument about paint colors. I know it has been said before, but we need to treat the ones we love like we really love them.

It is one thing to have regrets like never owning a helicopter. But hopefully, whenever it is our time to leave this life and join our family that has gone before us, we will not have spiritual regrets.

  1. Thanks for the reminder Rachel! I just found out about two ladies I who were in my ward growing up who died suddenly last week of random health things. crazy! We miss you guys and want to play games again. I don't think playing games with good friends is anything to regret.
