To forgive is not to forget. To forgive is really to remember, that nobody is perfect. That each of us stumbles when we want so much to stay upright. That each of us says things we wish we had never said. That we all forget that Love is more important than being right.
To forgive is really to remember that we are so much more than our mistakes. That we are often more kind and caring than we think we are. That accepting another’s flaws and failings can help us forgive our own.
To forgive is to remember that the odds are pretty good that we will soon need to be forgiven ourselves. That life gives us more than we can handle gracefully.
To forgive is to remember, that we have room in our hearts to begin again, and again, and again.
