As we gather together to offer thanks and gratitude, I believe it a perfect occasion to practice forgiveness as well as gratitude. It is inevitable that we will come face-to-face with an estranged family member or friend.
Nearly everyone has been hurt by the actions or words of another. Perhaps your mother criticized your parenting skills or your partner had an affair. These wounds can leave you with lasting feelings of anger, bitterness and even vengeance — but if you don’t practice forgiveness, you may be the one who pays most dearly. By embracing forgiveness, you embrace peace, hope, gratitude and joy. http://j.mp/hIcFcL.
