Saying I’m sorry….and most importantly, “I forgive you”

In my family saying “I am sorry” is very important…..but the words, “I forgive you”…..mean more to me than anything.  I think it says that you no longer hold anger in your heart…and that you have let the burden go…and that you are willing to continue as friends, sisters, brothers,  family….whatever your relationship may be. 

The first line in Ronnie Dunn’s song “Bleed Red”….sings in my head so often.

“Let’s say we’re sorry before it’s too late.  Give forgiveness a chance.”


About Kim

My name is Kim Marino and I have been practicing as a licensed speech and language pathologist since 1993. I work on Long Island providing diagnostic evaluations and services to children from birth to age 21. My experience is vast and am proud to say that I work with children that may present with articulation and phonological concerns, oral motor feeding concerns, Down Syndrome feeding, cognitive rehabilitation, auditory processing delays, receptive language delays, cleft palate feeding and sound development and expressive language delays. Most importantly, I am the mother of four amazing children and am happily married to my childhood sweetheart. I feel blessed to have my four children and so lucky to share this journey in life with my husband. I always had it somewhere in my head that I wanted to develop a blog or a website of some sort so that I could provide families with an additional that parents could help their little ones become a better communicator. And as I was developing this blog....I realized that I also needed to share the stories about my life and my children....and the funny things along the way that help to keep me smiling. Whether you are a working mother or not...finding balance between home, children and life can be a challenge....I hope that my blog helps to bring a smile to your face..and also some tools to help you help your little or big one. I hope you enjoy! Kim
