  • Thursday: A recipe for forgiveness might look something like this: a pinch of apologies, a sprinkle of seriousness, a handful of hugs, a ton of laughter and a boat load of goofiness. Sounds silly but, when you are mad at someone and can move far enough past it to give that person a hug, tell a few jokes and get a little goofy… that’s real forgiveness. Because you really can’t hold a grudge while having a booger-flicking contest. And if all else fails, try this recipe for Forgiveness Fudge. Because homemade fudge means no more grudge. Ingredients: 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1 14-oz can condensed milk, 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) butter, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp salt. How To: Prepare an 8×8 pan by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips, condensed milk, and butter. Microwave in one-minute increments until melted, about 2-3 minutes. Stir to ensure all the chocolate is melted, then add the vanilla and salt. Stir until the candy is smooth and well-mixed. Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer. Place the fudge in the refrigerator to set for at least 2 hours. Once set, cut into 1-inch squares and serve at room temperature. Store excess fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

No matter how you may shield them, your children will experience hurt and anger. The way to move past that pain is forgiveness.
