Things You Would Have Said: The Chance to Say What You Always Wanted Them to Know based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The Things You Would Have Said, Jackie Hooper, Hudson Street Press, 2012, $15 Sometimes it’s culture, timing, family dynamics or death that prevent us from saying what’s in our heart. So we’re left with "I wish I had told them" and sometimes painful regret. Author Jackie Hooper started a blog, inviting people to assuage their regret by writing letters to the people they wished they had spoken the words. This book contains more than 100 such letters. These letters will move you in many ways. Especially for those to the departed, they’re reminders that keeping things inside yourself just may mean that you'll never get a chance to say what you think and feel. One never knows what each day brings, so resolve to let the people in your life know how special they are to you. Writing letters can work through unresolved issues and help heal our sorrows and regrets, no matter how much time has passed. New Connexion Journal — Alice R. Berntson
