I just finished watching and am amazed how composed she was in speaking of her ordeal. I watched a woman have a meltdown in the grocery store this evening because she didn't think the fresh corn looked fresh and then I watched Jaycee. Says something about both parties.
I'll be honest and say I don't really understand the phenom of forgiveness. If I were her, I'd want that ass to suffer (and his wife, too, whom in my opinion shares a burden of guilt as well).
I don't understand it either, especially in extreme cases like this
I personally would love to hear that those two monsters are suffering from some kind of torture, and I'm not even involved in this case. I have a very difficult time understanding forgiveness
. Cowgrrl, you are a better person than me I have a very hard time getting over instances where people have hurt me. It's a big personality flaw that I have.
Jaycee must be one of the strongest people on earth. I truly don't think I would have survived something like that.
I would love to know how her daughters are coping with this. She mentioned that they were in public school and doing well. I'd love to know what they think of their father.
cowgrrl... for doing something I struggle with, and
Pixie for your candor,
For me, forgiveness is making the other party so insignificant they are no longer a part of my current tense active thought process. And for me, forgiveness doesn't mean forgetting.
Because I don't.
I just let people think it's not important anymore.
Then I go out of my way to make sure they see me smile when it's their turn.
Anywho, happy weekend ladies!
