Today’s forgiving journal: Forgiving for my mom

Today’s forgiving journal is forgiving for my mom.

Today is the anniversary of my mom’s death.  She died suddenly, and the situation was fairly intense.

My mom would have been the first person to forgive …. She would have said, “Debbie, everything is ok.  It is all for the best.  I love everything and everyone.”

My intention today is forgiveness, and I ask for mercy.

Mom, this poem is for you.

“I forgive” by Debbie Roth

Today is just like any

Other.  (anger)  Please don’t you see,

I want to cry?  STOP.

People walk…live…drink their tea.

And my whole world stopped this.


The day my mother passed from this planet. Where are

YOU MOM?  (I feel so …. Free)

Mom, this forgiveness is for you.  I forgive:

Who Did It

The Hurt …. God hearing that phone ring “He killed your mom”

The Person who did it

Again and again, as long as it takes.

I forgive:

Myself for not

Being there.

I forgive again and again, as long as it takes.

Gratitude.  For my mom.  She always says,

You are My Sunshine.

-D Roth


I was about to do a little more forgiveness.  I just realized that I can relax, breathe, let go, and be still with the love of this poem.

I am so thankful for you.  I give you all the love that my mom gave to me, and I ask that you send your blessings for me gently nurturing my little girl (and big one) today.

I love you.

  1. Hi Debbie, thank you for sharing this forgiveness.It’s not an easy thing to do. I’m grateful that you am doing it. I love you for doing that! Yes, you set yourself free by let go of the anger. On your mom’s anniversary of her passing, I put my arms around you, hold you tight until the tense finds a relief. Love, Miriam

      1. So do I. When I still had contact with my ex, I visualized him as the dead sea, only collects, but nowhere to let out (let go). To me, forgiving is not to allow the poison to stay in me. I let God deal with my ex. God has mercy on me and let me see how his “dead sea” mind afflicts him deeply. I have no ill will on him, but God is justice. Love you, Miriam
