Day 19: Your biggest regret in life
This one I truly regret. I regret not being able to treat my mom to an out of the country trip, even just in Hong Kong, or better if we join a Holy Land Pilgrimage. It was in my plan and it was supposed to be a surprise. However, I was too caught up in the construction of the house which was financially draining. But I wish I still set aside portions of my salary for that trip. By the time I paid up some of my loans and was ready to start saving for that trip, she was gone. I still remember bargaining with the Lord while she was confined at the hospital. Heal her and I’ll book us that out of the country trip ASAP. But either I was too late or it was really not meant to happen at all.
Knowing my mom, she would have disagreed. She doesn’t like me spending for her. But I would have insisted still. My magic words would only be “I was able to save some and I have the budget for it” and she will be pacified. And I am sure we would have had a great time.
And so I leave you with this: treat your parents well. Go ahead and do that one thing you want to do with them. Make it happen before it’s too late. Because if it’s too late, unfortunately, you’ll remember it for the rest of your life. It may not be always, and you may have already made peace about it, but you’ll remember it every now and then and it’s really not a nice feeling. 😥
