I don't think I'll know this side of death... 55 FFF




























I often wonder if you received it
and if you did, how
did you feel it, or was it a thought
a knowing deep inside, did it come
as a whisper or a cry, that prayer I said
the one where I asked you to forgive me

did you forgive me? I never heard back...

~~~

It's weeks since I wrote a 55 for G-daddy, way too many. Family commitment is the culprit keeping me from blogging...but this week I wrote it early and posted early so I didn't miss out. Hope y'all find this 55 interesting. :)


Join in the 55 FFF fun with G-man at Mr. Knowitall, have a great weekend!

A whole lot of love,

Eaton.

  1. That can feel tough, not knowing if we are forgiven, but what really matters is forgiving ourselves and moving on. And what a gift we give ourselves when we forgive another, or ourself.

    Lovely 55!

  2. Being able to forgive ourselves is just as hard as having others forgive us. Welcome back too 55!

  11. So many memories flood back just reading these simple yet elegant 55 words. Forgiving ourselves is all that matters otherwise we can't move on.

  12. Forgiveness is an important step in living and loving one another, and forgiving our selves is even harder.

  14. That's why it's important to say your apologies as soon as you realize the need for one.
