Good Morning, On yesterday I turned another day older and I had time to reflect as to what I had been through on my journey as a mother, entrepreneur, friend, fiancé, and child of God. I came to grasp with the fact I am loved by God and I was given this life to share how he will and is alive in all of us. I have been blessed with an opportunity to be a mother to 10 children never in my life would I have dreamed of this. I wouldn’t have dreamed of raising them alone. I hold no ill feelings towards their father, but it took me a long time to forgive him. I had endured a lot during our marriage and I too was at fault, but when I realized we together was not healthy for our children I gave up. I was physical, and I look back remembering that was all I saw and ten I only reacted to what I knew. So, in work relationships I tend to do the same if I’m assaulted verbally, I will reach back with the same demeanor because its what I was accustomed too. As a counselor I had to buckle down and breath in the words that I tell others utilize your calm down techniques and breath. Forgiveness at times makes some of us including myself feel weak and if we failed because we forgave, but we really won. I was listening to a sermon on forgiving and today I have forgiven all who hurt me and will continue to pray for those who will hurt me. I hope those who I have hurt forgave me also. I’m mature now and everyday I’m learning and want my kids and grandkids along with those whom I touch daily to know forgiveness was first given by Jesus as he forgave us for all the wrong, we did. Forgiveness isn’t easy and whoever said so more power to them. Everyday I will walk in forgiveness and if my heart is hardened then I will pray for a better attitude, but I will forgive.
