Sandy not only didn’t leave me, he barely scolded me. He lives a life of love, not right. It wasn’t the first time he’s had to put up with my set thinking and I am here to confess he is not the only person in my life with whom I’ve exhibited this trait. It’s one of those personality shadows that interferes with the quality of my relationships and which I have only recently begun to understand. Perhaps, this is why I’ve been granted these sixty eight years of life so I can continue to recognize how flawed I truly am. What was Pope Francis’ first message? “I am a sinner, pray for me.” Oh, yes, we are all flawed but as long as we don’t believe we are above or beyond anyone else, we can embrace our humanness and know that God created us just as we are. She/He created the the miracles of this universe and we are, each one of us, one of those miracles.
