"Never ruin an apology with an excuse."
~ Kimberly Johnson ~
When someone shares with us that something we have done has
Hurt their feelings,
Created some other kind of hardship,
To defend ourselves
And make excuses,
And explain away our behavior,
When what they really want
(And what's most needed)
Is an acknowledgement of the truth for them of what they've shared,
And a simple and sincere
I own my part in the unfolding drama of life.
