Spiritual Quote of the Day (Anne Lamott, on Forgiveness)

“Sometimes faith looks like myopia: I don’t see faults so clearly as I used of the most important gifts of spiritual faith is forgiveness, and I have grudgingly tugged this gift open over many years, and many hurts, until empathy for the other person has become almost a reflex. I have also grown better at recognizing when I’m the one in need of forgiveness. Most surprisingly, though, I have learned to forgive myself for most of my disappointing character traits and iffier decisions.”— Novelist-essayist Anne Lamott, “Have a Little Faith,” AARP Magazine, December 2014/January 2015
