Merry Amends Day

Merry Amends Day.

When I hear someone say that they have no regrets, it sounds to me like they’re saying they’re sorry for nothing—not for hurting anyone (they have, we all have), not for any mistake. What do you think?

I have regret. I hope to have less in 2021. If there’s anyone with whom I need to make amends, I’m open to knowing and doing what I need to do today. That’s my Christmas wish on Christmas Eve.
