Reconciliation Day

There are many other "Relationship Days" held around the world on many different dates. Among the countries are South Africa, Korea, Angola and many others that have struggled with war and strife.

Reconciliation Day is a special day to patch relationships and to make amends. It's intention is to re-establish relationships between family, friends and couples. Life is too short to hold a grudge between those we love.

Estranged couples may find today to be an opportunity to work out their problems. People who have had a "falling out" with family members are encouraged to reach out and "mend the fence".

For those considering a reconciliation, the old saying is "It's never too late". But, that is not true. Someday, it could be too late. So, please use today to begin your reconciliation.
