A Quote About the Art of Forgiveness


"It had made me realize that perhaps forgiveness wasn't a singular event, but a progression, or better, a dance that took some figuring before you could perform the steps."

Isn't that a great line? It inspires me.

  31. This is a popular quote from my novel--I think we all struggle with forgiveness (and as one reader mentioned, forgiving ourselves is often the most difficult).

    Cheers to the dance!
