Trifecta Challenge – Apologetic Love

For this week’s Trifecta challenge, you have to write a letter of apology in exactly 33 words. Addresses, salutations, closings, etc. (should you wish to include them) do not count in the 33 words. 

Love means never having to say you’re sorry, in the movies, but in real life, the only thing that trumps a sincere apology is forgiveness. I’m so very sorry. Do you forgive me?

  1. I always thought that line from Love Story was the biggest load of crap! Of course, I’m not much of a romantic. Forgiveness is everything. Nicely done.

  2. Forgiveness is for the person extending it. It doesn’t mean what you did was OK or I’ll forget it – it means I have made my peace with it & I can live with myself.

  3. You got it 100% on mark. Its come to be that saying sorry (whch we do MUCH less than we should I think) leaves us feeling vulnerable on both ends. Will we say it? How will THEY react. Great letter!

    • Thanks. That reminds me of a saying we used to have at the company I used to work at – it is better to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission.

  4. Loved this! I have no problem forgiving, it’s the forgetting that usually becomes a problem! haha!

    BTW, I did see “21 Jump Street” last night and had some really good laughs. You were right. Thanks for the great recommendation. I was in real danger of going without my weekend allotment of popcorn! …got it in just under the wire. Phew.
