September is in full swing and it's time to swap friendship blocks again!
Kristie's is the blue and mine is the green. I had a tough time putting the green ones together for some reason. You can see how badly my block is lined up in the corners.
I love how our colorful rainbow blocks are coming together!
This month's question was about forgiveness.
"Forgiveness is an integral part of any healthy relationship. What does forgives mean to you? Share with your partner an example of a time you had to forgive someone — or someone had to forgive you — and how it strengthened the relationship."
Tough question this month!
I think that the act of forgiving is powerful but it is something that can be so difficult to do. Forgiveness is hard because in order to forgive someone, one must let go of their judgements and see the situation in a new light. Not only that, it also takes courage to let go of fear, hate or anger and then let understanding and love come into your heart.
As for me, I try to have a loving heart. I try to take people as they are and strive to be understanding with them. I would rather have joy in my life than anger or bitterness, so yes, forgiveness can be a tricky thing but I think it's something worth working on!
