I’m participating in Five Minute Friday. Write off a word for 5 minutes, share, and comment on others. Join us!
The word grace makes me think of a lot of things.

The one that interests me the most; showing another person grace. Grace is like acceptance. Like forgiveness. Working in a school district I constantly wonder if we show enough grace to those with whom we work. Students. Parents. Co-workers.
All human beings are deserving of grace. None of us are perfect. We all make mistakes. Grace gives us the chance to try again and get it right. Grace is about understanding these things, but still not expecting perfection.
Grace. It’s what I give to you and what you give to me. It’s what makes living with others tolerable. It’s the pass. It’s the nod that’s it’s OK and I trust that you will try again.
