Glenda, which feels better: having no children, and hence no emotional ties to them, or having children who tell you to your face that they are happier without you in their lives? I dunno. Pretty easy to see what I regret: the ways I raised my kids. I regret my entire worthless life. Sod it. The sun is shining today. The birds are going nutz.
