Quote for the day

Brought to you by Jay at Two Women Blogging, blogger, mommy and psychiatristhospice doc extraordinaire:

Forgiveness is not the misguided act of condoning irresponsible, hurtful behavior. Nor is it a superficial turning of the other cheek that leaves us feeling victimized and martyred. Rather it is the finishing of old business that allows us to experience the present, free of contamination from the past.

-Joan Borysenko

    Thanks for the link and the plug, and the kind words, but I’m not the psychiatrist – that’s Tigermom, and she is extraordinary. I’m a hospice doc :-).

    Well, thank you. I love what I do. One of my nursing colleagues says she’s a midwife at the other end of life. If I could have made a career out of delivering babies without ever going into the OR, I would have – I loved it – but I would have been a truly terrible surgeon.

    You are doing good work, and I’m rooting for you.

  3. Right on. Forgiveness is far more for the one that forgives than for the one that is forgiven.
