What Is All The Kerfuffle On Forgiveness? – Single Mum, Parents Article

  I have been reading articles and books on forgiveness for decades now and I must tell you, I think in my case, forgiveness is overrated.

Dear John – A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent. – Single Dad, Parents Article

I seem to have upset someone with my last post. The person clearly didn’t want his name mentioning. Sorry I blocked you John. I assume that’s his name from the email address. My finger must have slipped. Ok John, to help hide your identity how about I call you something like Dork Head. According to my new friend, I apparently was disrespectful to the President of the United States. Really…. I must have missed that one. I was also patronising…
