A mother’s love transcends all sorrows, pains, and heartaches. A mother’s love is all encompassing, yet at the same time, it knows no bounds or reasons.
Charlotte Canion, author of the book, “You Have to Laugh to Keep from Crying: How to Parent Your Parents” demonstrated that the heart is mightier than any heartaches, betrayals and ill deeds. The heart of a mother can conquer anything… and it can most definitely brave forgiveness.
In this astounding story, “Brave Forgiveness” which was published by Women of Worth (Wow) Magazine, a platform that celebrates the Wow Gal in every woman, Charlotte Canion showed that being brave can mean letting go of your anger and fear. Being brave can be the hardest act a person can ever perform. However, it can be the most rewarding and uplifting. Being brave can mean forgiving… even if the one that has caused you that heartache is your very own parent.
According to Charlotte, “My journey to forgiveness was long and arduous. It required bravery on the part of so many. Bravery can sometimes take some time to accomplish – one step at a time, but it’s worth the journey.”
Thus, in her book, “You Have to Laugh to Keep from Crying” Charlotte Canion also shared how she braved forgiveness. She reminds us all that – when our parents are gone – all we left are memories. Her book will help ensure that the memories we have of our parents remain cherished ones.
