    sometimes not helping is helping. That can be a difficult lesson

  • Terrina Venditti

    Sometimes not helping is sometimes the most helpful way to help people help themselves. In gardening it’s called, “benign neglect.” Anyone with experience in gardening knows a plant can sicken or die from too much water, too much sun, too much food, etc. Plants, like people, often need to be left alone so they can develop their own sturdy ways of surviving and thriving. Still, it’s nice to be surrounded with love – just not a lot of “helping.” --Angela Ford

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.

Forgiveness. If you are angry, sin not. A lot of the times, we are chastised for anger, or for being uncharitable to others. Fair enough; that chastisement is deserved. But do we think enough about how holding onto anger and lack of charity hurts US by weighing down our souls? Think of forgiveness in terms of taking care of YOURSELF, too.

Live with intention, and awareness. Anytime a behavior becomes habit, question its nature. If you are conscious of the behavior patterns you are setting, they are more likely to be good ones. :)

"A head full of fears has no space for dreams." Love this one. I will have to keep this in mind every time I doubt myself.

My husband told me one night... and I know it's corny & a movie line... That I made him want to be a better man. It was THE moment I knew we would never be apart again. (Long love story, over many years.) Those of you who know us... You know what I'm talking about! - my mom
