Every Thursday I send a message about forgiveness. This week I put myself to the test.
Monday morning my maternal grandfather died. When I was a child he sexually abused me. I kept the family secrets until I was in my to late twenties and my younger sister, a tween at the time, tried to kill herself due to the abuse she experienced. I came out on her behalf as a corroborating witness and lost everything except my husband and children. Make no mistake, I gained nothing . . .
