Let It Go


Dennis and I both read this new book, and I would say equally loved it. 

It's about a man who loses both his wife and 2 of their children in a car accident by a drunk teenage driver.
Not only did he work to forgive the drunk driver who took half his family, 
but he also felt it was his responsibility to help this young kid. 
If he didn't, he felt this kid would spiral down and have a tragic life.
Not the usual way of thinking for a victim.

To me, this book is spiritually empowering.

I know I showed this short video before on my blog,
but here it is again if you missed it.

And of course the book is so much more.

Thanks for this. I cried through the whole thing. Unbelievable how this man was able to turn this tragedy into a blessing.

I remember watching this video last time you posted it, such an amazing story. Makes the little things that are so easy to hold onto as grudges seem so trivial!

I think it's sometimes the little things that are harder to forgive than the big ones.
