Love and Forgiveness

How are you feeling? Do people really want to know? And do you even know?


I’m feeling like making a post on Valentine’s Day. Happy Valentine’s Day!


Love and forgiveness, "they go together like a horse and carriage," (1), whether there is a marriage or not. We all need to forgive, to get along better, and getting along better and forgiveness can help health by reducing that gosh darn stress level. So Happy Valentine’s Day, love to everyone.


A funny quote, Mark Twain, he’s got that way with words,

Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.
Mark Twain, (2)

Violet, it is a lovely scent and forgiveness a lovely thought.

There’s probably more on that topic but we’ll keep this one short.


Happy Valentine’s Day! Enjoy!
