  • Next time I'll

These are favored words of mine. They take the failings and foibles of today and flip them forward into a promise of tomorrow that is richer and fuller because I learned from today.

  • Next time we'll

I love these words too. They turn the injurer and the injuried into partners moving forward. Instead of needing to set boundries - oh - I'll never invite her to this kind of event again - "next time we'll" sparks a conversation that lets us stay traveling companions. I love (respect, value) her and don't want to cut her out. I want to find our perfect place in each other's lives. I want to take the shared failings and foibles of today and flip them forward into a promise of tomorrow that is richer and fuller because we learned from today.

We shared from the heart and decided next time we would. And after we did, she called me a true friend. It does take one to know one.
