You might be saying, “Say what?” If I had to pick an apple I’d say I was a Suncrisp apple. They are a smaller type of apple. When you take a bit the apple itself is crisp and crunchy, yet not too hard. The taste, not too sweet and not too sour, but a nice combination of both.
So why would I consider myself to be like a Suncrisp Apple. Because overall I’m a nice person. I try to do things for others if I can. However, one major flaw of mine is my lack of patience. I don’t have very much. I can get frustrated very easy unfortunately. It’s one of those areas in life where you wish so bad you could improve but have a very hard time doing so.
I’m writing a book about my daughter and what happened during those sixteen days she was in the hospital. I’ve titled it “Seeing the Gift.” It has a double meaning and one of them is that seeing what a gift my daughter truly was not only because she was my little girl but also because of her autism. She helped me with my patience more than anything else in this life. I had to become more patient as she didn’t have the capability to communicate the way she needed to be able to.
So, the not too sour part comes in with my lack of patience but it’s improving and the not too sweet is that I don’t ever go over the top by being sappy. I’m continually learning how to improve and what I can do better.
What about you? What kind of apple would you say you are?
