One of my faithful readers just told me that my post about forgiveness sounded preachy. I re-read it, and I think she has a point. Many times in the past, I have been unwilling to forgive what to me seemed unforgivable. I can certainly understand anyone else who feels that way rolling their eyes and saying, “Bullshit!” after reading that post.
I don’t want to retract what I said, but I do have to be careful about that preacher/teacher voice in my writing, and I see some of that here. Thank you, those of you who commented positively — you are all unfailingly supportive of me. Thank you to my reader who passed her reactions along to me — you keep me honest! My regrets to all, for slipping into that voice.
