The angel had been Margaret’s friend for a very long time. Every time she would get “down and out” Ariel would declare a time out and declare a sit down, “let’s talk this thing out right now! Most of the situations wound up concerning something that Margaret had either said or done that she regretted doing or not doing. Over the years these little talks were enough to keep her going and feeling good about her life. As the end of her life grew nearer she realized that her time to correct things was running out and she began to panic with doubts of being able to fix/correct situations before she would have to answer for them “on the other side”!
Ariel decided it was time to tell Margaret about the Book of Regrets. Not everybody got to hear about it before it was too late. As the legend was told Margaret was very excited to know that in the book there were different lives that she was living based on different versions of decisions she had made all during her life right there where she was.
The Book of Regrets could be found in a special library that Ariel could take her to during a dream one night. Margaret wanted to go right that minute but understood that a special trip like that would take some thought and planning.
A week later early one evening Ariel told Margaret that they would be allowed to go to THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY that night. No preparations had to be made but at 15 minutes to midnight Margaret got very sleepy and went immediately into a deep sleep. She woke up standing by Ariel at the front of a dark building that looked like a church with a steeple and stained glass windows. The two wide red doors were glowing with light and when they got up to the top step the doors slowly opened. Inside there were rows and rows of large books lining the many shelves that filled the inside of the building.
The librarian greeted them and explained how the library worked and how Margaret could learn how to change all of the regrets that she had made during her lifetime.
The lessons that Margaret learned from the trip made the rest of her life happier and more meaningful and also prepared her for the next journey in her soul trip back home.
NOTE: This legend was inspired by a book by an international bestselling author, Matt Haig…….THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY, 2020
