My sisters and I encountered housekeeping tip envelopes when we stayed at Best Western in Quebec City this summer. Although we declined services during our three-day stay, some of us left a little something before checking out. I agree with some comments on this article that if someone is being paid to make sure your room is clean or that your food is served as ordered, intact and on time, why is there an expectation to tip? Tip fatigue indeed!
It’s one thing to forgive another’s transgressions –
It’s another to FORGiVE oneself
for bad life choices,
preoccupation with past mistakes,
those self doubts,
It has taken me years to forgive myself for not acting soon enough,
to lead the exodus of the innocents,
to expose a dark burden,
to shed an uncomfortable skin.
When we travel the rough roads of this earthly existence, I think we experience and appreciate more moments of being alive. I believe that it’s during the financial and emotional hardships that a spark of creativity ignites to nurture hope and an innate desire to connect with other souls.
In The Year of the Rabbit, a novel about Fate, Family and Forgiveness, the readers share the joy, sadness and other emotions experienced by Father Gio and Sera Fletcher.
I am Gio. I am Sera. Perhaps you are too.
Thanks for dropping by.
