I made some icing for cinnamon rolls this morning. One thing I love about icing or frosting, besides its obvious deliciousness, is that it is forgiving. If it’s too thick, you add a little more milk, syrup, extract, or melted butter. If it’s too thin add some powdered sugar. It’s no big deal and it all works out. You can’t go wrong with fat and sugar.
Frosting is forgiving, and you should be to. When you forgive someone, you are freeing yourself. You lighten your load by releasing anger and resentment. Those things will only bring you down and keep you miserable and stuck.
Forgiveness is something we give to others, but it is a balm to soothe ourselves.
