It was one of the biggest events in his life, and she was one of his dearest friends. That's why he was disappointed to learn that she wouldn't be attending, and even more disappointed that the reason she gave seemed pretty lame.

The next day, his disappointment was gone. He had found himself reflecting on how generous she had been over the years and how much he appreciated her past support. 

"She gets a pass," he told me, and he meant it. "She's a bit like a cat. You appreciate her in her own nature."

As for me, well, I was deeply touched by his genuine appreciation for her despite her having let him down. I find myself basking in awe of his gracious heart. What a gift.
