A Tattoo is Worth 1000 Apologies
I told a dear friend today that I am thinking about getting tattoos. I need one that says, "Thank you" and one that says "I'm sorry." Then, I can just point. She pointed out that I might be taking things too personally, and she is absolutely right. I don't always need to apologize for my special needs kiddo, or to feel as though certain accommodations equal gigantic favors. I should, and do, appreciate all the goodness that comes our way, but if I ever feel like I'm needing to grovel or gush, maybe that is in my head. My friend is a wise woman. It just made me laugh, though, to realize that if I had those tattoos, I would have pointed at both of them at the end of our conversation!Good thing I'm afraid of needles.
