We have been taught from the very first of our days to seek forgiveness when we have wronged someone and to grant forgiveness to those who have wronged us. In turn, we have done our very best to teach our children the same. But let’s be honest, sometimes, it’s just a whole lot easier than others.
There are many aspects of Ben’s personality which separates him from others. One of my favorites is that he doesn’t hold grudges. He just doesn’t. When he says, “I forgive you.” he means it. Completely. Totally. Gone from my memory forgiveness. I pray someday I may learn to be so forgiving. Until then, I’ll strive to be more like my son.
