The power of forgiveness

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.– Mahatma Gandhi

 

I have posted about forgiveness before…and I think it is filed under My story…..however…during this week of Thanksgiving…when I think about all that I am thankful for….my family…my home…my career….the health of my family and friends……I also think about the power of forgiveness….and how for me and my family….I have always believed that the words: I forgive you….are three of the most important ever said.  To say I’m sorry…..to me…..is not as important..than to say that you forgive someone….because when you forgive someone…you not only offer them forgiveness….you let go of that burden in your heart…it is not always an easy thing to do…but I often remember that we are all NOT perfect…and should never strive to be….and when we realize that none of us are perfect…that we all make mistakes….and most importantly…that we all need to be forgiven….  I think when we realize these things…..we can then offer forgiveness.

The power to forgive….as Ghandi said….is an attribute of the strong.

Happy Thanksgiving.

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 resource....so 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
