Loving the Parents

Earlier today I was watching an episode of Criminal Minds titled “What Happens at Home” (for those of you that follow the show); it’s blurb is “(2010) The team profiles a killer targeting women inside of a gated New Mexico community, and Hotch asks for help from a FBI cadet.”
The interesting part about the cadet is that she’s the daughter of a convicted sadistic serial killer, which makes her a key component in finding the current killer.
The cadet feels responsible for the families of the victims because of this connection and this feeling drives her to put her life in danger. The fantastic quote at the end of the show put a finer point on it;
Children begin by loving their parents; after a time they judge them; rarely, if ever, do they forgive them.

I’m happy to say that I’ve forgiven mine. The thing with having children of your own is that it puts a rather harsh perspective on the relationship you have with your parents and knowing that I am doing the best I can with what
I have at the time makes me realise that my parents did the same.
I think it’s when we can’t be sure that our parents did the best they could that we find we can’t forgive them. And sometimes it’s only after they’re gone that we truly find forgiveness and peace. The Joy Luck Club is a succinct study on this very subject.
The dragon to me symbolizes a fighter. Everybody knows that to be in love you have to fight for it to make it work; it’s never easy.
So have you forgiven your parents? Is there a love that you have to fight for?
Drop me a comment; I love hearing from you guys!
So Happy Friday All! & Have a Great Weekend!
