    I Forgive You.....

    Isn't love and life about forgiveness at times? Sometimes in our lives we are often hurt by the ones we love and we hurt the ones we love in return. As I bask in balmy breezes and 100 degree heat on vacation I have reflected on forgiveness and being able to do this 100% with no...

    Will I Be Able To?

    There are a few people I need to forgive. Each will be very difficult in their own way. Each one has abused me to different degrees and in different ways. I don't know that I hate any of them. Hate is such a strong word and emotion. Is it hate when the mere mention of one person...
