” To Err is Human, To Forgive is Divine. ” -Alexander Pope-
We’ve all made mistakes, especially when we’re hurt and honestly believed that the choices we made were for the best. When I looked back on one of the most turbulent times of my life, I realize that I hurt someone who was very dear to me. Though unintended, I’ve caused damage and distress. But like every strife, in time; things will be still and eventually heal on it’s own.
Just this past week end, I got an email from a friend. Truly, it was an answered prayer. It was a simple and short birthday greeting, but it help cleared my cluttered thoughts and relieved my long aching heart. Nothing feels better than a guilt-free spirit. My upcoming birthday will be a celebration of love and a renewed faith in friendship. An attestation that God works his marvels in mysterious and improbable ways.
Thank you was all that I could get out,
Though I wanted to say much more,
You have taught me of love and forgiveness,
And that I have something to live for.
Thank you, my friend!
