Today I am Grateful for...


...forgiveness.


Everyone messes up sometimes.
We say things we wish we didn't. We don't say things we wish we did.
I find that being angry hurts and is exhausting.
But worse, is the feeling of regret.
The feeling that I am really sorry but someone is still mad, and I hope they will forgive.
And they do.
Then comes the part where I have to forgive myself.
When it's over and forgiveness frees it all
the feeling is
a little closer to perfect.
And that's all I could ever ask for.

I'm UNDONE with gratitude
for forgiveness, too!
Oh, can you imagine
life without it?!?!?
So thankful for the gentle
lifting of our heads:)

This is what it's all about, isn't it. We would all be totally lost if it weren't for forgiveness. Wonderful post.
