Learning about forgiveness…..


Sometimes in life things will happen to us and all we know how to do is just stay angry all the time .I was once like that my mother had given me up at the age of 2 yrs old. I was her only girl beside me I have 2 brothers and I am the second oldest . But when my mom decide to give me up she asked my grandmother to take care of me but when time pass on my grandmother pass away and my auntie decide to take care of me. By me being so young not knowing what is going on I always thought my aunt was my mother she had other kids and they were calling her mom so I decide to do the same but she had a talk with me and explain that she was my aunt not my mother. It had me very confused about my life and why would a mother give away her only daughter, my mother at the time was getting abused by my father and she was a heavy drinker. My mother would come up to the school always drunk  I had school programs and she would be so drunk it was so embrassing to me why would she come up to the school like this what’s wrong with her I had developed a hate relationship with my mother .

Going into my teen years my aunt had a serious talk with me about my mother she explained to me that the way my mom is has nothing to do with me she loves me in her own weird way but she has serious problems and she told me that in time I would have to forgive her for the choices she has made in life, by my mother giving me up I’ve become a strong young lady who has gone through a lot but came to the conclusion that I was missing something in my life and that was being able to call my mother and be around her and maybe help her with this diseased called alcohol.  I decide it was time to forgive my mother and start a relationship with her . Forgiveness is such a powerful thing but we must look deep within ourself and believe pray to god to open our hearts and heal the wounds that was once  broken within us god forgives us on our daily life journey we need to believe and receive and accept the lord forgiveness….
