Forgiveness


Children are a gift from God.

It is a privilege to be able to raise children.

It is a very hard job because parents often have no good role models in order to guide them in raising their children.

My parents spend a lot of time arguing, so I did not see a lot of love.

During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, my youngest daughter choose not to attend because she is holding a grudge against her mother and brother.

It saddened me and my other daughter and other family members.

Holding a grudge means that you choose to hold on to anger.

The healing process can only begin when you forgive others for wrongs they have committed against you.

I get you, man.

I was lucky. My parents were numbingly normal and unexciting and stable and dependable and I say thanks for that every day.

But I have known and been close to my share of dysfunctional families. There is a reason one of my kids is now a therapist . . . .

That's all I will say in a public forum.

But I get you.

Afterthought:

I learned a long time ago that forgiveness is not a gift you give to others. It's a letting-go that you give to yourself so that you can move on.

Psalm 127:3.

I'm sorry to hear of what's been going on with your youngest daughter, I will pray for her and you and your family.

Very true, I had to go through this process myself some years back.

Thanks.

I told Jessika that it saddened me.

She did not take it well, but it needed to be said.

That's why I forgive silliness for believing in such things, we*** will evolve!

Have fun...
