Quote of the Day

Global Forgiveness Day - July 7th
Don't be afraid to say you're sorry!

July 7th is Global Forgiveness Day! I personally find it much easier to forgive someone when they have said the words that are often hard to say...I'm sorry! Somethings are definitely harder to forgive than others. In order to move forward, it is much easier to let the past go and move on!
