“I tell you, families are definitely the training ground for forgiveness. At some point you pardon the people in your family for being stuck together in all their weirdness, and when you can do that, you can learn to pardon anyone. Even yourself, eventually. It’s like learning to drive an old car with a tricky transmission: if you can master shifting gears on that, you can learn to drive anything.”

–Anne Lamott in Traveling Mercies

Ain’t that the truth.
