Over the last six years I have made many concious decisions to forgive my ex-husband. But, forgiveness is a process….layer by layer…bit by bit… over time.
I’m prompted to do so yet again…one more layer, one more bit.
I was reminded today that forgiving is FOR GIVING….first of all to ourselves. I choose to give myself the gift of forgiveness. I choose to pray for, wish for, hope for … the best…. for the father of my children.
I hear from others that he continues to function in this world in toxic ways that harm people. I am saddened by that. I hope that he can experience healing so that no longer happens. I would love for my kids to one day feel like they can re-engage with him because he is capable of healthy relationships with them. Right now, that is not the case.
I choose forgiveness. I choose to create a life of joy and peace. I choose life.
