Trying to have a forgiving heart

I think that most of us want to think of ourselves as forgiving souls, at least, I do. I'm working so hard on stretching that forgiveness muscle right now and quite honestly could use some prayer, if you are so inclined.

Without going into too much detail, my girl has been mistreated. Not in a way that is physically damaging, but emotionally. What makes it worse is that it was by some people whom I entrusted her with for hours every week.

I'm heartbroken for her, for me, for what used to be "normal". We are going to have to find a new "normal" for my girl. It can be done, without a doubt, but it will be hard.

Please pray that I find forgiveness in my heart, but more importantly, that Paige finds it in hers. Life certainly has bumps in the road and it is those bumps who make us the people we are. Praying that this bump is resolved soon so I can have my happy girl back.

So many days I wish I lived in a bubble world with my kids... where no one could harm them in any way. I'm so sorry this happened to Paige.... and to you. Forgiveness is tough, that's the truth. Give it some time.

So sorry girl..... I hate to hear things like this happening, but especially wehn it is done to someone as sweet as Miss Paige.

I am not sure what happened, but it sounds like it has to be pretty bad for you to be this upset.... I know that you are a very forgiving person.

Hopefully this will all work out and your happy girl will be back:)

Big Hugs to you both~
