About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me.

      Death writes a finish on the possibility of righting wrongs, and leaves us with a lifetime of regrets. I loved my daddy so dearly, but I only denied that he was ill enough to be taken from us. I regret that I was not honest about my fear and my love. I just left him alone with his fear. 1977, and I sit with tears still over forty years later.

        So many regrets about my mom — too many to list. When we were young, there were truths about life and aging that we didn’t understand. The tears mean we learned from our mistakes.

    Regrets that can be rectified in a person’s own life need to be addressed but what we cannot change or alter need to be surrendered to the ONE who understands and takes the burden away. Blessings.
