Forgive so you will be forgiven
IN RETROSPECT....and GRATITUDE
The deepest pain a parent has is not when we are disrespected, but when we are disregarded. Parents make sacrifices, survive unbelievable
odds, make choices that put them in harm’s way and sometimes suffer irreparable damage to their body, mind and spirit.
Some of the shame, selflessness, and secrets that parents experience in the process of parenting are payment that is due to them from the world and their children. The pain cuts deep when a child becomes an adult and is selfish, self absorbed, manipulative, bitter, and unresolved of their child/parent relationship issues.
The pain the parent received from their children is what they inflicted on their own parent. This issue will not be resolved until the parent recognizes themselves in their own parent/child relationship
On this Meaningful Monday of our lives, let’s ask for forgiveness of our parents for the damage, disregard and disrespect we inflicted upon
them. If they are still alive . . . tell them right now! Call, go visit, or write them a letter. If your parents have passed on, light a candle and place a
glass of water down for them and for you. Begin to write to them and tell them how you feel. When this very sincere, apologetic letter is finished, leaving it under the candle and leave it there for three days. Then do with
It what spirit directs you to do.
Have a blessed day.
