I regret putting DD in the school out here when we moved. If I'd just started homeschooling her right away she never would've been bullied or had to have her eyelid butterflied. Things that a little kid just shouldn't have to go through.
Very true Kate this is what I think in my situation as well. I also remind myself that if I'd left sooner, maybe I wouldn't have been sure, or gone back, or regretted leaving thinking things could have worked, etc. I did what I had to do and did everything I could do.
Things in the last year.. nothing specific springs to mind. In general I try not to think of things in terms of regrets. I do the best thing I can at the time. Overall though it probably would have been helpful to reign in my mouth more at times ... I can say too much too unpleasantly when I get mad and worked up especially when I am really stressed. Also have stormed out a time or two when I shouldn't. Something to work on I try to remind myself of these three hadiths when I start to get torqued about something:
A man came to the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, and said, "Messenger of Allah, teach me some words which I can live by. Do not make them too much for me, lest I forget." The Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, said, "Do not become angry." [Abu Daud]
The Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, said, "I know a word, the saying of which will cause him to relax, if he does say it. If he says: 'I seek Refuge with Allah from Satan' then all his anger will go away." [Al-Bukhari; Vol. 4, No. 502]
Abu Dharr narrated: The Apostle of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, said to us: "When one of you becomes angry while standing, he should sit down. If the anger leaves him, well and good; otherwise he should lie down." [Abu Daud; Book 41, No. 4764]
