Sorry?

I don’t say “I’m sorry” very often. My husband comments on this because he feels that he is the only one who says these words. I find “I’m sorry” lacks meaning unless we genuinely mean it.

Us women do need to hear these words but for my husband I don’t just spill out words without meaning (which us women often do) I show him each day that I forgive his unforgivable and aggravating behaviors by loving him and allowing him to Feel my love, every day. This is a great article.

See, there's this thing called biology...

Continuing my quest for justice in conversations across the intertoobz, I encountered this  interesting gender tendency around saying sorry. “Justice” within marriage requires an interest in your spouse’s perspective, sorrow for their suffering, and a willingness to name evil for what it is.

I am a mother of 16 children and grandchildren. Some of them are by blood and the rest by heart. I was a foster mom for a few years and the children I cared for during that time have mostly stayed with me through the years. I love to write, read, dance, paint, and play with my animals. I enjoy dressage riding and just being in the barn. My words are my gift, as they allow you to know me as I really am. Thanks for joining me on this ride of life!
