received an email today from a woman
who was one of my students as dean
of women on a university campus.
she reminded me i had sent her
home for special reasons, and all
these years has held intense bitternes
toward me. It sounded as if i had
really nearly ruined her for life.
so i have been wearing a coat of
grief all day. i can scarcely recall
it, but i was too young being a dean
when we were nearly the same age.
i blew it, and she was courageous
enough to help make amends with
the foolishness of our youth.
Wounding others along the way.
let's keep our slates clean.
accept how we have wronged another
without playing justification games.
"oh, Jesus, may we forgive others
as You forgive us."
my car is to arrive by transport
tomorrow at ten a.m. the waiting has
almost passed. i'll send a pic on blog/facebk.
please know i still read all
your beautiful words to me. line by
line. often moved to tears. with
