Love makes us feel secure, happy, and complete.  Love is the greatest gift of all!  Unfortunately, sometimes love can take a different path, and make us feel empty and lost.  When we refuse to forgive someone or even ourselves, we stop living.  We become bitter, angry, and resentful toward others and ourself.  If we don’t forgive those who have hurt us, we live our lives with bandaids on our pain.  I find the story behind the song “Forgiveness” by Matthew West, to be a selfless act of forgiveness.  A mother lost her daughter to a drunk driver, and refused to let grief and anger take her life.  She not only forgave, but traveled all over the country speaking with the man that killed her daughter.  The message to teens around the country was to not drink and drive, and to forgive one another.  She told her story to Matthew West, and he was inspired to write the attached song.  This mother let love shine to overcome the pain instead of letting anger and bitterness take over her life.  Love is a better, healthier choice…
