As I sit here and think of all the memories I could write about, I wonder, why do I choose these stories? I guess one could say it’s because days go by so quickly that before you know it, we’re old. Those turning points I thought about in our lives have turned in the blink of an eye.
Whether or not you choose to complete reading this book is completely up to you. However, know just one thing: this book was put together with a lot of heart, soul, heartbreak, love, and, yes, tears. This book is written from three very different perspectives yet much the same woman, with very different stories of heartbreak and laughter. There is one very common thread, my love for God, along with my strength as a woman to persevere through some of the most horrific times of my life, not on my own accord—although at times I thought so—but by the grace and mercy of our Holy Savior, Jesus Christ!
I would like to take this time to thank all those who went on my journeys with me—those who supported me, those who held me, those who cried with me, and yes, even those who gave me a kick on the rump when I needed it! I would also like to thank my church for being our rock on those days our lives turned into nothing more than a swamp.
I dedicate this book to the ministry that has been helping me throughout the years, for all the goodness you gave to me and others.
In his loving grace,
