Text on card reads:

An apology says,

“I’m aware of my mistakes and I don’t want to hurt you.”

It also demonstrates a humble spirit.

Have my children heard me say, “I’m sorry” lately?

* * *

I don’t know why it is difficult for so many of us to say we are sorry to our children. Maybe it’s the notion that we are to be perfect in their eyes. This is interesting since we ought to demonstrate how to handle life, including when we make mistakes.Our kids learn the most, not by what we say, but by what we do. They watch us.

Occasionally my thirty-something children will tell me something that influenced them in their youth. Things I have long since forgotten, made an impression on them.

Just remember to be sincere, not sarcastic, when you say those significant words, “I’m sorry.”
