sorry seems to be the hardest word

yom kippur is a day when we jews apologize for our sins and ask G-d to inscribe us in the book of life.

there are so many things for which i am sorry. a few:

i’m sorry i lose patience with people, especially with my kids.

i’m sorry i am occasionally horrible to the people who love me the most.

i’m sorry i don’t always keep my promises to myself.

i’m sorry i am not doing more to make the world a better place for my kids and for everyone else’s kids.

and

i’m sorry i make assumptions about other people.

    In the spirit of the holy day I think I will have my family say a few I’m Sorrys tonight at dinner. A good way to start a conversation about other people’s sacred beliefs, too.

    Cheers, Miss Wreke!
