To be forgiven

Now that we are approaching Yom Kippur, it is a comfort and a relief to know that forgiveness can be given.

For things we did,

and for things we didn't do.

For things we said,

and for words unspoken.

For mistakes which, we might believe at some moment, rendered everything broken beyond repair.

For offenses given with or without meaning, for harsh feelings, for pettiness, for stubbornness.

For the refusal to see through eyes of another.

As we travel down this long and winding road, how good it is to know that we can be forgiven.
