He sent along these thoughts about love:
While we have it, we should love it and care for it.
Fix it when it is broken and heal it when it is sick.
Do it for marriage and children with bad report cards.
Dogs with bad hips and aging parents and grandparents.
Keep them because they are worth it and we are worth it.
Some things we keep - like a sister-in-law after divorce.
Some people make us happy, no matter what.
To forgive is the most rewarding thing one can do.
Forgive others - if for no other reason than selfish reasons.
“Do it for yourself if not for them.”
Michael’s words came back to me watching “Invictus”.
The movie stars Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela.
Mandela came out of prison after 30 years.
His first action was to forgive those who put him there.
His next move was to bring his country together.
Not just games but the World Cup in South Africa.
It was his way to bring a racially divided country together.
Improbable as it seemed, the South African team won.
Forgiveness and reconcilation were the keys to solidarity.
