Remembering to Forget

 

A friend of Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross, once reminded her of an especially cruel thing that had been done to her years before. But Miss Barton seemed not to recall it.

"Don''t you remember it?" her friend asked.

"No," came the reply, "I distinctly remember forgetting it."

You can''t be free and happy if you harbor grudges, so put them away. Get rid of them. Collect postage stamps, or collect coins, if you wish but don''t collect grudges.
