Could your leader go live on Facebook?

Set up a you tube or Mevo channel? That would help for next time.

That's what my church does.

Also as one very wise Sparkler said. Guilt burns no calories. You can't undo the past. So press on.

I am gad you were able to get some things done. It's also a good reminder your parents won't be around forever to act as your chauffeur.

It's probably a great idea to become more independent getting around. You have a job and can certainly afford fares for public transportation and a taxi on occasion. You and I are the same age and my parents aren't my chauffeurs. I have also lived with my parents as an adult a couple of different times due to unfortunate circumstances for me and they weren't my chauffeurs.

Your friends can tell you about it next time you see them. You finally got things done at home, that were useful for a change. Move on.....

I do believe the Good Lord will not hold one missed Bible Study against you.... And sometimes, just having an unexpected several hours to do something you hadn't really planned on can put your whole week in a new positive perspective if you think about it. emoticon

Its also a really positive thing that you were missed by your other friends though. No doubt that you will have many good discussions with them in the future!! Enjoy those friendships...but on another day.

Elaine - Ii can understand your Dad not wanting to take you. You mention it is not very close, and the weather was bad. I wouldn't want to be out driving in that, either. You can't blame him. He isn't getting any younger, either, and a lot of people when they get older reduce their driving hours to daylight only.

I don't see why you should feel upset and lousy because you didn't call a cab. You managed to be productive and get things done that you wouldn't have otherwise.

My Dad flat out refused to send me to Bible study last night. It was around 7:15pm at that time. It starts at 8pm. It was raining heavily. My Dad said according to Waze traffic was horrendous. He said most ppl wouldn't turn up anyway and suggested I call a cab.

But I decided not to because it was not very close and with the weather, and the peak hour, it would have been v expensive.

I allowed his words to sway me plus my Mom had cooked Thai laksa and everything looked so delicious! But it turned out that everyone turned up except me and they had an interesting discussion.

Now I am feeling so lousy and upset. I should have just bit the bullet and called a cab. However by not going, I got a lot of work done and I even did a facial mask. I just bought this new clay mask and I really love it.

I am just feeling huge regret at not going right now. Sigh!
