This month I have been practicing forgiveness.  I was told forgiving someone is not for the other person but for me.

Hey, I thought that was a neat idea until I got to thinking about all the grudges I held, and folks, I am in my rights to hope some of these folks get pay-back.

I was thinking of my neighbours down the road a piece.  Their dog is forever trotting up the road and doing that nasty thing on my lawn. I did go down there and speak nicely to them, asking them to please keep their dog home.  Did it do any good?  Not on your life.
