My son, Dan, died 5 years ago at the age of 28 of a bilateral pulmonary embolism that had been diagnosed as bronchitis. Every time I look in the mirror at a new bulge or wrinkle, I am briefly horrified. Then I think of Dan, and wish he had had the privilege to grow old enough for wrinkles. I would give anything to see a wrinkle on his beautiful face.

Life isn't always easy. But if you endure to the end, it will all be worth it in the end and your bad days will make the good one's sweeter:)

A great topical list of Scripture on Forgiveness can be found at: http://devotionalchristian.com/bible-verses-forgiveness/ Mark 11:25 ESV And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” // Matt. 6:15 but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

...especially when someone or someone's is affected by narcissism, they have it or are aiding & abetting by their co-dependence. In the end this is all about what my recovery is about, realizing I don't have to pay attention to everyone who demands it. It's ok for me to say "you're hurting me with your words" and then to walk away. CLICK HERE for more life, love, friendship and inspiring quotes!

Maybe God hasn't been saying no.... but opening the doors to something far beyond anything I could have imagined.
