A message that hit right home

"I once picked up a woman from a garbage dump and she was burning with fever; she was in her last days and her only lament was: ‘My son did this to me.’ I begged her: You must forgive your son. In a moment of madness, when he was not himself, he did a thing he regrets. Be a mother to him, forgive him. It took me a long time to make her say: ‘I forgive my son.’ Just before she died in my arms, she was able to say that with a real forgiveness. She was not concerned that she was dying. The breaking of the heart was that her son did not want her. This is something you and I can understand."

If we really want to love, we must learn how to forgive.


  1. Forgiveness......yes the answer and the question......The music is beautiful. Where did you find it, my husband the musician is wondering:>)

  2. Crayon - *hugs*

    Linda- I fell in love with this version when I watched 50 first dates. Scenic Hawaii and this song were such a perfect combo. You could find it on and get the video on youtube. Just search for his name: Israel Kamakawiwo'ole- Somewhere over the rainbow :)
