Forgive faster

Dear Me:
You’re going to make a lot of mistakes. Be sure to forgive yourself much quicker than I did because you still turn out quite good. You have a great heart and a quick temper. Forgive faster than I did. Be kind to our parents. They love us more than anything. And even though the lights are all off at midnight when you come dragging home by curfew, they’re both in the bed but wide awake, worried about you. And when the time comes that our Dad gets sick, look inside yourself for the strength that I’ve built. You’re the only person on Earth who can comfort him and our Mom. Choose your words carefully and lovingly. And start praying NOW that our Dad gets through this because even at 38, we aren’t ready to be without him. I love the woman you become. I love you.
