Mending Fences

This last weekend has been the weekend of making things right with some of the people that mean the most to me. I have been mending some fences and I'll tell you what... it feels GREAT!!! For a year and a half I have had turmoil in my life with several people, both friends and family. Then, between Saturday and yesterday Mike and I just decided to make right the wrongs that had occurred. (It actually took more time than two days, but having to explain that would make me have to go into the time line of both occurrences and yadda, yadda, yadda... just take my word for it)

On Saturday night we had some friends over that we thought would never set foot in our house again. The things that were said and done back when were set right by apologies and hugs... then good eats, followed by dessert. Then on Sunday, since Mike and I were already feeling like we were making things right with people, decided to drive to my Mom's house and settle a family squabble that has been going on for some time now. Again, the things that were said and done back when were set right with apologies and hugs... but, no good eats or dessert followed that time.

Then when I went to bed last night the weirdest thing happened to me... Even though I was awakened by Tucy 2-3 times, I slept better then I have in quite some time. It's amazing what two small words can do for you... "I'm sorry" is so easy to say, but for some reason so hard to do. Mending these fences made me realize two things... 1- I should never again let my Pride get in the way of making a wrong a right. And 2- I am glad that I don't have any more fences to mend, but if I did, I would go out and mend it right away, because it feels Fantastical!!!
