Word of the Day
Lenity
(noun) — leniency; the state of being merciful or restrained; the quality of being forgiving

Word in a Sentence: In the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, Chariss's lenity toward Nigel's wayward and roguish past endears her to the man's mother.

Your turn! Oh, man, another timely one like yesterday. There's a difference between lenity and stupidity, though, between compassion and self-preservation. When someone has taken advantage of your kindness once too often, it's time to practice some tough-love. In my novel, the characters teach me quite a lesson. Do you have any forgiving and merciful sentences you can whip out there for us with today's Word of the Day?
