&
forgiving.

Forgiveness: both receiving and giving is the best gift.

I feel like we're missing out on a story here. no?

This is pretty deep button. Or am I reading too much into it?

Well, I dunno, dad. I might just be extremely deep or something. ;)

No, and since Heather expressed some curiosity, I will just say that there was some gossip flying around about me from a past coworker and it's been eating at me for months. I expressed my anxiety about it to Brian and he said instead of worrying about it I should just confront the person. So I did. And I said I was sorry she felt a certain way about me and that I felt it was incorrect and she said, "I'm the one who is sorry. I wish I could take everything back."
Anyway, we cleared the air and it felt very good. I told her I felt so much better and she said she did, too. So turns out I wasn't the only one losing sleep over it.
So, that's the story, but the lesson learned and the feelings, I think, were pretty intense.
So, a departure from my usual attempts at amusing everyone, but a true thought, nonetheless.
Love,
Belina
