Forgiveness


"Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it"
Mark Twain


So I'm reading Break No Bones By Kathy Reichs, who is the inspiration behind the TV series Bones. As I was reading, I stumbled across the quote above and really connected with it. How many times in our lives have we felt stepped on, but to be able to forgive, is one of the best feelings in the world. I thought I would share it with all of you in hopes that you find it as inspiring as I did to help remind us that we shouldn't always sweat the small stuff and to work through and past the large stuff.


I had taken this photo last summer during one of our excursions to a local forest preserve and decided to play with it a bit in Photoshop and share that as well. Hope you enjoyed this little quote and photo.


Until next time!

Hi Evelyn,

The book is good, it's the second of hers that I'm reading/read; however, it's very different from the show. She was married, has a daughter, works somewhere totally different. But there are still plenty of bones and forensics going on so I'm hooked!

I'll get it, I love that stuff!
