She’s gone. She’s gone. She’s gone. And no matter how I beg mom to return, she is NOT coming back. She’s gone.
But thank God there are these quiet whispers saying things to me. Reminding me that no matter what happens
you will be ok…you are not alone…I am here…rest…go ahead and cry”

a Hot Prayer for love
I believe in working hard and praying hot. So,
God, heal all broken hearts. Give us constant reminders of your love. Protect us in our weaknesses. And help us grow beyond this pain. And through your love — may we be strong enough to prepare for new and better days.”
Have a beautiful day.
