    Like Frank said in his classic song "I Did it My Way", "Regrets: I've had a few, but too few to mention..."

    But I can't say I did it my way. I took the opportunities as they came, even when I made some serious mistakes.
    So to speak, it was more of "every which way the wind blew, I seemed to have rode the waves."

    I have to be thankful, however, because I believe that He was in the background taking care of me.

    Three times in my life, I almost bit the big one, but due to some unexpected things totally unexplained, I lived through them.
    I think it was all in the Lord's watch-care over me, and I still subscribe to that philosophy, because there is no other way to understand it.

    I'm no saint, but I always felt He was in my presence even as I look back, even though at the time I didn't know it.

    I too have more regrets than I care to remember. Most were a result of either my stupidity, insensitivity to others, and immaturity. No excuses for any of that, I am ashamed of some ot what I caused and our family is totally fractured as a result. Sad to say, it is too late to repair any of it.

    I've thought long and hard on this and have no regrets.

    Regrets, I've had a few, but all in all too few to mention,
    I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption...
    I planned each charted course, each careful step along the highway,
    But more, much more than this, I did it my way.

    I have always regretted that I wasn't born rich, handsome and well hung. Well two out three ain't bad, but winning the trifecta would have been great!
