I was comforted by a 4 month old last night.
Forgiveness,,,,,I think it is one of the hardest, yet healing and most powerful things we can do in our life.
You know? We ask God for forgiveness, and He with his mercy forgives......but do we forgive ourselves?
Usually not. We hang on to that guilt forever.
I'm guilty of it. Heck, I still feel guilty over being mean to a girl in high school. I'm serious. 30 somethin years later.
A couple of weeks ago a friend ask me to blog about this subject. Not that I'm some expert in forgiveness but I've had to do my share of forgiving. And by the way, I have to hope that some of the people in my life have forgiven me! Not really sure why I'm blogging about this today but I think with death comes forgiveness. You have to forgive yourself and not hang on to the guilt for things you may have done to that person. We MUST forgive ourselves. Even if others don't forgive us, we MUST forgive ourselves. I truly believe it is one of the most healing things we can do for our soul.
We are all taking turns being with mom in this transition. It's tough, I'm not gonna lie, but it's wonderful being there for one of the strongest, most wonderful people in my life.
She's a fighter and is still with us.
