Forgive

Forgive the bird screeching at 4:45am.

Forgive the elderly man fumbling for change in the checkout line.

Forgive your ex. Truly forgive your ex.

Forgive your parents and your boss.

Forgive your high school guidance counselor.

Forgive the truck driver at five mph below the speed limit, in the fast lane, at 5pm on Friday.

Forgive the dollar your coworker owes you. All ten times.

Forgive the one who doesn’t signal.

Forgive the line cutters.

Forgive the slow person in front of you at the ATM.

Forgive the previous owner who wrote in your book.

Forgive the person who didn’t return your book.

Forgive your spouse, your partner, your coach, your doctor, your other ex, and last but not least, don’t forget to forgive

yourself.
