The mistake wasn’t the kind of thing I’ll be worried about in 20 years, but it was too important to ignore. I had to try to make it right.
I don’t like confrontation, and I avoid it to a degree that isn’t always good (unless it’s my kids or my husband, but that’s another post). Sometimes people just mess up, and you can show them grace by letting it go. Other times people make mistakes that cause problems for a whole bunch of people, you aren’t doing them any favors by staying quiet. And I hate that part.
So today I am thankful for a good outcome. The person could have felt cornered and come out fighting. Instead, a gracious apology was offered, with the promise to make it right.
And for that I am thankful.
