On Love, Forgiveness and Continuing to Give Up on "Being Right"

The whole notion that I wrote about last week of choosing to be loving over choosing to be right has, unfortunately (OK, it’s fortunate, but still terribly inconvenient) started to work its way into every compartment of my life, most recently rearing its devastatingly convicting head in interactions with my boys.

So, there is a certain amount of reflection and introspection involved with being a parent.  OK, let's be honest, being a parent lays waste to your best perceptions of yourself, completely reorganizes your priorities, and fundamentally reshapes your worldview.  Having two beautiful little boys has certainly done that for me.  They've taught me volumes in their short little lives.
