We were heartbroken to hear only complaints about the trip. Nothing seemed to be working right and they were both clearly miserable. And within their first 24 hours away they were already talking about coming home. Worst of all, it was our fault. Their entire holiday was centred around our suggestions.

And it came to me this morning–as clear as the crisp air of a new day: The Fifth Petition of The Lord's Prayer:
And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
