I’d like to take great liberties and ask, “How Do You Repair A Broken Heart?” The Bee Gees song, popped in my head as soon as I saw the IF prompt (although they used the word, mend), this week! Actually, I can still hear the tune as I post this.
All this to say that repair never reminds me of home remodeling or fixing an inanimate object. It always makes me think about repairing the brokenness of people I have hurt in my life.
Do I wish I had no relationships to repair? Yes.
Has my relationship repair jobs taken me to places that I would rather have not gone? No.
In the repairing of relationships, I have found that I have been the one repaired!
Always in repairs of the heart, we grow, deepened and realize that we are and always will be messy humans, who are always in need of repair.
Start a little at a time, maybe with just a thread, a call, a letter, a note…do something…and repair what needs to be repaired in your broken relationships.
Repairing my life a little at a time, sending out some amazing wishes for you to use the tools in your life to do the same! Peace
