The difficult art of forgiveness

There is a special grace about forgiveness within a family.
It is so easy for us to get our little feelings hurt and our
fluffy feathers ruffled. Sometimes we act more like alley
cats than a loving family unit. But all it takes is one brave
soul who will swallow hard and say, "Please forgive me",
and suddenly the cattishness disappears and the joy of
living returns. In the past week 3 of my kids and
my husband have all apologized to me. And you can bet
I have apologized to them and more than once. It makes
this adventure of living together all the more exciting!
