Quite Sunday morning. Sipping fresh coffee. The house is quiet. My Dad’s clock is chiming in the background. It makes me wonder how I would have been different if my parent’s did not divorce when I was 8. What influences would he have brought into my life had he been strong enough to fend off the influences of the other woman and been the Dad that my sister and I needed.
Although I try to be the person that can forgive someone at all costs in order to have a peaceful soul, it is difficult not to harbor contentment. With that said, I try every day to practice this measure. I really do.
Problems are like a grain of sand, there are many. We can either focus on the minutia in life or look at the big picture. We are not alone. We have others to lean on. It’s ok to lean sometimes. It really is.
