Today, on my 83th birthday, a year after my husband passed away, I realized that our choice to not have kids was indirectly a choice to celebrate the rest of my birthdays alone. MMT

I'm sorry you are alone. Having children is no guarantee of not being alone, nor is not having them a guarantee of being alone.

Never regret and smile until your last breathe. Peace and love come naturally at some point, you have it, treasure it

I am currently struggling to get pregnant. This is actually a fear of mine, so this has struck a chord with me. However, I do agree with the other 2 posters here. You made the decision you felt was right, and hopefully you got to create beautiful memories and spend quality time with your husband.
