Everyone expects a few rough spots when relating to
people. If you have kids, my guess is that you’ve had mud tracked in on
the living room carpet, a window broken from a stray baseball and
perhaps a car fender dented when your novice driver made a solo run to
the grocery store.

Or maybe you’ve experienced an upset over something as
minor as a family member’s missing an appointment or forgetting to take
a phone message. These minor ‘bumps’ on the road of life are usually
dismissed with a casual, “Oh, you’re forgiven. Forget it. It’s OK.”
