I am very impressed and heartened by this. I hope that you truly take it to heart. As someone who has not been able to forgive at least one of my parents ~ and possibly both (as I hold my father somewhat responsible for not stepping in and protecting me from my mother) ~ I am still hopeful, somehow, that at 61 years old I can find a way to put things into perspective as you have. My parents are still alive (82 and 86, and married 63 years next month), but I have as much anger today towards my Mom as I did 50 years ago. I don’t wish it on anyone.
