If only there wasn’t a 6:00am alarm waiting for me. I suppose that’s what coffee is for.

Accepting Apologies

When someone has said something uncalled for and hurt your feelings, if they do apologize, it’s OK to let them apologize with grace and humility, and to accept the apology with grace.

Granted, the apology is probably bullshit.
