Hello dear friends! How are you today? I'm embracing this week with an open heart after wasting half of a weekend being a bit down on life. Do you ever get that way?
I admit I rarely feel angry with life but after watching two dear friends recently lose their mothers to cancer and allowing another few close people in my life ruffle my feathers for various reasons, I had just had enough. I regretfully took out my frustrations on those closest to me, my husband and kids of course. I spent most of Saturday just acting a fool and being a complete grump.
Later that night, I said some prayers, went to bed early and woke up Sunday morning with a clear heart. I decided to let it all go. On our ride to church that morning, I apologized to my family and asked them to forgive me for my terrible behavior the previous day. I explained to my older son that even mommies have bad days and how easily his sweet little heart embraced my apology. If only we could all forgive and forget so easily!
Do you have something you need to let go of? Or, more importantly, do you have someone you need to forgive?
It's not easy. But it feels so good.
