the apple

i guess today i'm seeing things differently. she was only trying to protect herself... i do the exact same thing. we has humans protect ourselves. if a situation is causing us pain and doesn't appear to change, we get out. it's instinct. i can't hold that against her. i now have to get over 15 years of resenting her... which will undoubtably be a challenge. but i like challenges, right? like the challenge of getting to my next class in five minutes, hah. hopefully i'll get to know her and maybe ever bridge the gap of our family again (HIGHLY unlikely, but remember how i like challenges?) No, my only goal in this situation is to maybe get to know my long-lost grandmother and show her the love of Christ, as I know she needs it so desperately.
