Sorry….

This sweet niece of mine says it often…..photo (63)

So often as a matter of fact that I have started to ask her what are you sorry for?

She smiles and realizes that she is using the word when she really doesn’t need to apologize….

I have come to realize how important the words i’m sorry really are….

I am quick to remind my niece’s and nephews they are words that should only be used when you really have something to be sorry for….

Sometimes I feel like sorry has become an empty word…

And yet, when used in the right space, I find it is a word with great power and invitation to forgiveness….

And so, I believe we should only use the words I am sorry in a complete sentence….

I am sorry for….

I love when I can hang out with her and we smile and grow and learn together. She smiles now when she says sorry when she doesn’t need to.

Then she says I am sorry for saying sorry!
