I am never sure when I make a mistake if I should be totally ashamed, slightly guilty or just shrug it off as one more example that I am not perfect. I know I have a tendency towards pride in that I can wallow in error. However, I think the mistake I made by not taking some postings private was an honest one and I think I learned from the error. I let frustrations in the work place over take my good sense and I will NEVER let that happen again!
Here is what I have learned - number one, whatever I put on my postings is on there forever so chose your words wisely girl. I have also learned that it is good to trace one's personal growth. The resentment and anger I once felt towards my peer has not only faded it has disappeared. Why? Because I grew up and so did the other person and today we are working together in harmony. Steady prayer, the need to cling to Our Lady and the ability to say, OOOOPS, has gone far to help me in the past five years.
Today, what I know, is that without the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Reconciliation I would not be able to be the woman I am today. I let Jesus and His Church guide my steps and if I stumble (and I do) I can honestly say, "I meant no harm, I made a mistake, please forgive me".
It was a difficult week - lots of drama and anger and sadness and fear.....today I am safe in the arms of a Loving God.
