I am sorry.

Three pretty easy words to say. They are short words and separately they are just words, but when you put them together they make a very powerful statement.

I am sorry.

Sometimes we say them so often that the words will just roll off our tongue with no meaning to them at all. It's just something we say after we bump into someone and then keep walking in the other direction.

I am sorry.

And then there are those times when we have to be humble enough to look someone in the eye and apologize for the wrong doing that we have done.

Those three words may not be big, grand words but sometimes that is what needs to be said.

I was wronged and all I wanted was to hear those words. To know that the person was sincere. I want to build a friendship again, but I can't. I didn't realize how important those words were to me. I didn't know that I needed to hear the words 'I am sorry'.

I have a hard time trusting someone who can't apologize.

I have realized that an apology will not come.

I have also learned that I need to make sure that I am humble enough to apologize when I need to. That I make amends and that I do it completely. Time does not heal all wounds when one is unwilling/can't apologize.

I am sorry.

There is such a big impact when those words are used, and used sincerely.

I am sorry.

And then there are those times we have to forgive even when that person doesn't ask for it. Or even bigger than that when they don't deserve it because if we don't we are allowing them to have control over emotions that drain us. We can forgive but we don't have to forget. Love ya Leah ~ you are an amazing friend, educator, mom, wife, the list could go on and on!
