Forgiving (& forgetting)

Forgiving’s easy (well, for some, & in some cases. Not all, not all)

 

Forgetting’s the really hard part.

 

I’m soooooo grateful for all the good memories

In amongst the gritty/disastrous/painful bits

 

Lots of wonderful memories

So glad to have these![1]

 

Still.

 

In spite of the forgiving

the forgetting

(& the remembering)

 

Some things just really take a chunk out of a person

 

don't they??

 

p.s. Hmmmmm. & then there is atonement. When we need to be able to forgive ourselves...
