The longer I live – the more I give grace. The more I realize that life is difficult for everyone. The more I see that no one escapes unscathed. The more I understand that we are all doing the best we can.
It’s all any of us can do – the best we can. Our kids may still make bad choices. We will still make bad choices.
We will wish for do-overs and have to settle for grace-overs. We will say things we regret and regret the things we didn’t say.
Here’s my promise to you. When I see you fall, I’ll lift you up instead of laugh. I’ll listen to you instead of judge you. We can love each other without looking like each other. I will try to understand even if I’ve never stood where you stand.
We can do this thing together doing the best we can.
