    "You will know that forgiveness has begun when you recall those who hurt you and feel the power to wish them well." -Lewis Smedes ~ Mark Nepo writes about 'Feeling Beyond the Hurt' on page May 22 in THE BOOK OF AWAKENING. He says, "We are asked to know ourselves enough that we can stay open to the truth of others, even when their truth or the ability to live up to their truth has hurt us."

    SO TRUE! Just recently did this, actually. I don't wish any harm to those who have hurt me .. that's just not who I am. I wish them well - that doesn't mean I will have them back in my life. I just hope they learn from their mistakes & realize what they have lost in their lives do to their actions. - MB

    I don't entirely agree with this. Forgiveness is not a feeling, but rather a choice that you make not to hold what someone did to you against them. You choose not to bring it up unnecessarily to them, other people, or yourself. So I think this is a nice quote, but it's more like, "you know your choice of forgiveness has successfully included your feelings as well as your will when you want good things to happen to someone who has done you wrong." That is a very good thing. =)

    TRUE FORGIVENESS. 10x15 Fine Art Print by InspireSomebodyLLC. There is so much truth in this saying.... When your heart truly wants those who have hurt you to be happy, you will be free to be happy yourself. I wish everyone understood this.

Yeah basically, which is sad because I hate lots of tabs open on the computer. :P Or maybe that's why I don't like it on the computer... because I already have too many open in my brain.

Do you know how many of the few people that know about my infertility have offered me a hug??? Zero!!!! Even when I'm hiding out in another room bawling my eyes out. Not a single one of them has showed any care or compassion!!!

worth quoting..."Somedays we could tightrope across Manhattan, and other days we are too weary to clean our teeth. This is Normal. This is Natural."

this makes me sad because there are so many people I want to stay with me now, and there will be so many more like that in the years to come:(

Let things go...they are heavy.

The best day of your life..you have the power to make your life the BEST it can be! :)

You will get there when you are meant to get there and not one moment sooner. So relax, breathe, and be patient.

I hope no one is ever in the situation the teachers were at the Sandy Hook School, but if I were, I hope I could be as strong and courageous as the teachers who saved their students' lives.

This includes everyone in your life...kids, family, friends, co-workers, business partners. Showing you appreciate someone goes a long way! ConwayAdventure.com

Forgiveness is a decision. We decide to cut off the bitter root and plant a seed of love. We cannot blame ourselves if it does not grow; sometimes the other party has poisoned the soil too much. But we must keep the bitter roots cut and plant more and more seeds of love. Forgiveness begins when we make that choice; long before we see the results.

I love this!!<< this is TRUE of motherhood, it develops you in a way that is amazing, people can tell you but until you have children yourself, it is just unknown. My children have taught me so much about myself and about life. I am a better person individually because of them!

the sweetest things you can do for a girl are the little things that let her know she's in your heart and mind
