This is a powerful story of an unlikely friendship, that will leave us with an example of what true forgiveness really looks like!
The power of forgiveness releases any anger or bitterness that one may hold for those that have caused pain in one’s life. It also allows for love to flourish, in a way that one may never have imagined.
Forgiveness helps the victim to heal. It is the Godly thing to do, for we too have sinned and have needed forgiveness from others and especially God.
It may not be easy to attain, on our own, but with God, all things are indeed possible. This mother is an example of what true forgiveness looks like: a Christian woman that IS the epitome of God’s servant.

Ephesians 4:32 (KJV)
32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
