little girl, big mountains


Colorado. Visiting Brandon's family.

The goal was to get the bad taste out of my mouth when it came to Family by being around someone else's.

Here is what I learned:
every family is messed up in their own way.
but.
not every family just accepts that. Some work for years [and years and years] to understand what happened, forgive all necessary parties, and get over it.

Some people really do that, and it really works. And those people are my new heroes.

Life is a quest to successfully do the opposite of what your family did to you...and when you wind up doing it anyway, not feeling horribly bad about it. Enjoy a chocolate chip cookie...or a plate full of them...and try to do more familial good than bad.
