I had to reflect on my father several times before I could see more clearly, before I could put myself in his shoes and walk through my teen years. Tears of regret prompted me to write this haiku:
Wish I could thank him,
Reflecting on my father.
Sadly it’s too late.
Now I frequently remind myself that the best chance to give thanks is now. Even in difficult times, I can find at least one reason to give thanks and that changes my outlook.
Thanks, Naikan, and thanks to all who show the way!
