“Forgiveness means giving up all hope of having a better past”

The inspirational wisdom in the title comes from author Anne Lamott.

Why not set down whatever sack of hammers you are carrying around from your past? Do you really want that weight for your future journey?

Let today be the day for the death of grudges.

It seems like a Good Friday to do that.
