As I sit here and reflect on my life up to this point… there is not much to complain about. I have made it this far. I know a few that didn’t get that opportunity. If there is one thing I have learned over the last few months, it is forgiveness. You can’t move on with your life if you can’t forgive. Right now my dad is near the end of his battle with cancer. Time is no longer on his side. If I had continued to harbor bad feelings and anger for over 40 years there is no way I could move forward and be at peace right now. I made a decision a few months back that my dad’s life was his own. I also had to accept that I would not be who I am had he been in my life. It would have changed the course of my life. I like who I am. I love who I am. He is still very much a part of me. But I had to let go and forgive in order to move forward. If you are still upset with your parents or a loved one, just let go and forgive. Move forward. You will lift the weight off of your shoulders. I am not sharing this because I want you to like this or pray for me. I want you to pray for yourself and your pain. I have already forgiven. I hope that you do the same.
