    Summary

    "Ye must go now, said the lad, away from all of this tae where ye belong, over the sea to sky. For he loved her, an’ would see her safe. The lad and faerie lass didnae ken that they’d been blessed wi’ child, and the faerie lass was braver than he, so at his words she drew the blade that had bound them in marriage, and said to her beloved, I willnae leave ye, not now nor ever, for I love ye and will stand with ye even in death. And the lad kent in his heart that her words were true, and gathered her up in his arms, and wept."

    OR, as the tale goes, a family stayed together.

    Summary

    Forgiveness is a funny thing. As a child, you give it freely. A simple "I'm sorry," can erase almost any hurt. As you grow older, get burned a few times, develop a few scars, it becomes harder and harder to give. "I'm sorry," is the beginning of the conversation, not the end. And if you're burned enough times, develop scars that will never heal, forgiveness becomes an abstract concept, something Oprah talks about giving for yourself. And there are some wounds that can never be mended, not with a million "I'm sorries."
