Dh had been married for 30 years and his wife left him for another woman. It was as bad as bad could get.

Flash forward 12 years. His exís wife is very sick. My dh sent the exís wife (the woman his ex cheated on him with) a heartfelt message about hoping she has a successful surgery and we are wishing her all the best. He even said that she is very good for his ex.

Iím so glad he sent her the message for many reasons. One being that it is a good example for his son of being gracious and forgiving.

Never underestimate the power of time (and therapy and medication) for healing deep wounds.

Though we never forget being hurt, forgiving is so important. He is a wonderful example of being gracious. You have a good man.

Thank you for sharing this hopeful story of forgiveness. It makes me think unresolved issues in families can eventually lead to peaceful relationships.

He is definitely a keeper. I agree, that is a great example for his child to see.

What a class act! In a time when so many ordinary people are so extraordinarily rude, petty, mean, and vindictive, it’s refreshing to hear of someone behaving in such a mature and civilized way.

That was a very nice gesture for your husband to do that. Forgiveness and grace will do far more than people can imagine.

RamonaQuimby- Yes! This also helped me to remember that he is a good guy, even when he drives me nuts.
