Contrary winds have blown across my heartstrings and wreaked havoc with my haven and safe, happy home.
Terror gripped and ripped at my mind; as I helplessly watched my most precious love slip from this life into eternity.
Suffocating loneliness, as I have never known before, descended upon me like an avalanche.
I did not know the human heart could possibly feel this much pain and loss and trauma.
Bitterness has come knocking at my heart’s door several times; but I refuse to answer.
My life has changed and been rearranged in a million ways; and I don’t always know how to answer the questions anymore.
However, I’M — STILL — STANDING!
