This morning I ran into the father of a child with whom my son has had done difficulties recently. I was bidding my kids farewell when our eyes met by chance. It took me a minute to figure out who he was and that moment of uncertainty may have given him a start because he followed with “Is everything okay?”
I was surprised but immediately answered in the affirmative that everything is fine before wishing him and his kids a good day. It was a strange enough occurrence that it has had me thinking and reflecting dive it happened and a party of me wishes there were a way to go back and redress the situation; to make a further peace. I get how hard it is to raise kids and don’t blame anyone for the difficulties with and bias we all have for our own kids. I will forgive and forebear everything to the last breath, knowing that truly we all want only happiness and to avoid suffering.
May he and his family be well. May they meet with every success.
