A Conversation with my Son
9/29/2007 1:58:46 PM
My son took me out for lunch for my birthday last week. We had a wonderful time...laughter was abundant as we shared what had been going on in each other's lives over the past month, or so. Then my son's words took on a more serious tone, "Are you ever gonna forgive him Mom? Not so much for him, but for you...so you don't hurt anymore"
After composing myself, I was amazed with my son's caring and concern for my well-being. I answered "It's not so bad now....I am not angry really, just rather disgusted with his actions...I really don't have time to dwell on it any longer". My son seemed rather satisfied with this answer and carried on with the other topics of conversation.
But, he made me think....
Can you truly forgive someone who does not have a care in the world about whether or not you forgive them for the hurt that they have caused you? When they continue to act as though you were so unimportant in the decisions that they made that they actually referred to you as an ant that simply needed to be smashed and swept out of the way....can you forgive someone like this?
Can you forgive two people so incredibly wrapped up in their own self-importance that even years later they do not recognize that they are just glorified adulterers who broke up two families to be together? Can you forgive such selfishness and cowardice?
And if I did....who would really care?
