If I Could Turn Back Time

My heart is heavy today. I wish I had a remote to rewind life. If I knew last week what I know today I feel that I would not have let someone down. As a stay at home mom I really try to use my flexible schedule to help people in need around me. Take them dinner or offer help. Especially moms. It is my heart and passion to help other mom's that are faced with hard times or are overwhelmed. I am also a shy person. I always try to say hi and come out of my shell to talk to people but something I do struggle with is when someone is obviously struggling or hurting to lead into a conversation about it and ask them how they are doing or if they need any help. So today I wish I could turn back time for even just a week of my life and I feel like I would not have let unsaid person down.

I know I don't know the situation, but don't be too hard on yourself. If you let someone down, then you apologize (if that's necessary/possible) and you move on, asking God to help you not do it again.

I've been in situations before where I wanted to do/say something, but I didn't and then I regretted it afterward. It's easy to spend a lot of time blaming yourself, but you can't do that.

I hope you're okay.
