Forgiveness...

Today at church as we recited the Lord's Prayer...one particular line really hit home for me...
"...as we forgive those who trespass against us..."

Seems very appropriate for our recent weeks happenings. I realized today that I really need to let go of the anger and frustration, and attempt to forgive the thieves who broke into our house in order to move forward. I still cannot understand how some people can do the things they do, but I will try the route of forgiveness, rather than anger.

Wish me luck-

You can do it! Remember our favorite thing... its a lot harder stay angry. Don't let that into your life. XOXO

Keep up the good work friend! I can only imagine the resentment, but it is not fun to carry around! Especially when you are a ray of sunshine like yourself!

oh my gosh, Court! I am so sorry to hear that happened. Wow. I wish "kneecapping" wasn't the first thing that came to my mind in reading that - what a violation! If you can forgive and move on, a difficult task no doubt, but in the end you will be happier. Maybe go to a few boxing classes in the meanwhile. It also helps me to believe in Kharma. Takes the load off your own shoulders thinking you need to exact retribution. Kharma will do it.
