Forgiveness

Forgiveness is not easy. It IS easy to say you forgive someone but to REALLY mean it is a other thing. My brother Ernie got himself out of a marriage he was not happy in. At that time he also walked away from his two small boys and his family. He woke up and for 20 years no longer wanted to be a dad, a son, a brother, an uncle, a cousin or a nephew. He just walked away. The rest of our family helped raise his two boys without him. We never saw him for 20 years, although he lived two towns away. My dad died suddenly and he came around again. I do not forgive him for what he did. I am happy he is taking the time to see his mom. I enjoy his company buti do not rely on him or trust him. I am still after 9 years not ready. I cannot imagine forgiving him, I wish I could find a way to do this.
