Day 4 – A photo of a place I’d like to visit and something I need to forgive someone for

Day 04 → a photo of a place you’d like to visit.

Santorini Island off the coast of Greece. 

C and I wanted to visit Greece & France on our Honeymoon, but thanks to an abysmal exchange rate between the Euro and the USD at that point, it was impossible to go for as long as we wanted to at the time. Don’t get me wrong – Jamaica was amazing, but I hope we can get to Greece sooner rather than later! I travel abroad every two years, just out of principle (yeah, and to keep me from going bonkers in this little town)… so since I went to Norway this year, I’m hoping 2012 will be the year. Time to start saving!!

Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.
Well, the person who caused this move is the only person in my life that I feel has truly hurt me. Yeah, there’s the petty hurts that happen to us all throughout life, but the to the core, oh my God how can one person hurt your heart so badly so many times kind of pain has only come from her…and it’s time for me to let that go. I haven’t spoken to her since last January when she said some really hurtful things to me about my marriage and why I hadn’t been able to conceive, and that is such a freeing feeling to not be a part of each other’s lives anymore. That being said, I heard that she had a preemie last summer (through a friend of a friend who didn’t realize we don’t speak anymore) and my heart just dropped….I would never wish for any Mom to go through that sort of pain and worry about their child. I have no idea how the story ended up, but I do know how I want my story to end up… I want to let go of that pain and hurt and disappointment. For good. Here’s to forgiveness and moving on…

  1. That was seriously back in JANUARY?!?! Why does it seem like it was only four days ago or something? It's weird, I haven't heard you mention her in so long, I kind of forgot about her. Weird.

  2. I'm really enjoying reading / looking at these posts, even if I'm not commenting every day.

  3. Um first of all, I am coming with you and Charlie to Greece. So plan on a third wheel. hahaha. No but seriously I want to go to Greece so badly too. Andy said I have to wait for their economy to stabilize because apparently when people are desperate they kidnap foreigners and shit. Whatevs. Hopefully it won't be long before we both can go.Second, I am glad she is out of your life. Although now I am freakin' curious what she said about your marriage and conceiving. Because I think you deleted that post before I read it, or I forgot what it was about. That happens with my sad brain these days.

  4. I cannot believe anyone would say anything negative about someone's quest for a child. I have no idea who this girl is but I HATE HER. Sorry I know this post is about forgiveness but maybe you can forgive her now that I hate her so much haha

  5. Forgiveness is such a great thing! Sometimes it's for others, sometimes ourselves, but it always feels like a burden lifted off your back.
