It should be safe to say that at one time or another, most of us have found ourselves undoubtedly knee deep in the wrong. Whichever way we view our unfortunate position, we owe someone a five letter word: sorry. There’s just no way out.
We twisted this way and that, squirmed and wiggled here and there, looked up and down and even tried closing our eyes to make the situation disappear. Some of us fast talkers tried to justify our mistakes. Like I said, there’s just no way out. Or in.
The only way to feel right again is to apologize. Yup, say “sorry”. And, mean it.
And, what’s weird about apologies is that you have to mean it. Saying “sorry” while angry, proud, untruthful, or any of those less than genuine emotions cancels the apology, and we find ourselves back in square one, or even worse, minus one!
I made a “sorry” card and made sure it was pretty and genuine, so as to soften the blow. Let me know what you think!
So, before we find ourselves in hot water, let’s just settle this once and for all. It IS okay to say, “Sorry”. You’ll be fine. Trust me, and good luck.

So, I remembered my card, “Hang In There”, that I had made. At the time I made it, I thought of birds on the telephone wire looking down at the world of people bustling by. They were quiet witnesses to the tell tale faces. What do birds think of people and how we live out our days?
And while the birds hanging on to the wires in steady balance, how are we hanging on. I hope this card will encourage someone who is downtrodden or in need of a pat on the shoulders. Do you know anyone who might need a helping hand, an email or a phone call?
Would you like to be friends? Often, people say that the world is getting smaller since the emergence of the world wide web. Somehow, my mind creates an image of connected communities that links individuals together like the stars in … Continue reading →
The arrival of Autumn reminds me to count my blessings. While the Fall season is the little sister to the hoopla and over-sensationalized New Year celebrations, it is a good time to stop and “smell the roses.” After all, … Continue reading →
