How very sweet for your Dad to say that to you, and to know that you needed to hear it from him. And about decisions you made in the can't go back and change them, and you did the best you could do at the time, so forgive yourself and let go of that guilt.

One of the professor's where I work got a grant to study forgiveness, and the stories he collected were amazing and inspirational. Here's a link to the website:

I know I feel better since I "forgave" my ex-husband. This was something I did internally, and didn't even tell him (no point since he doesn't believe he did anything wrong). But the anger is gone and I can even laugh about some of it, now. Doesn't mean I would ever give him a chance to do any of it again, but I feel stronger about it now that I'm not carrying the anger around.
