Excerpt on Love
"I was just thinking how we have to not react to her. I have to still be her daughter but not let her rule my every thought and action. I can't change her; I have to be the one to change. I have to know what I want (which is all of us together) and keep working towards that goal. I have to walk the Grandmothers Way of quiet fortitude. I have to trust in God and all of nature to make us as the willow on the banks, strong and bendable so I won't break. I have to believe, have faith, and proudly claim my place beside you as your one true mate. Through my quiet fortitude I will make amends to you and my boys and anyone else I have hurt in my reactions to a woman I should not alway listen to. Only I can change. I am changing. I feel it. I will love you until I draw my last breath. I will make you proud one day. I choose not to hurt you any more despite what I have been taught. I will be more and work harder than I ever have. This is my promise, my vow to you."
