    This is to you:....

    Sunshine isn't necessarily sunshine...
    Just a distant star....
    Bright up close...
    But just a spec in the far...
    The road of our journeys...
    Trampled and torn...
    Worn... and weary...
    The day will come...
    When a job must be done...
    Just another triumph...
    The Lord has placed you to Overcome...
    And well... i must say...
    God Bless...:x:
    And well Done!!!!!

    :toast:

    I know the feeling of triumphs.... when I was young, my mother and I wasn't that close either. But distance, triumphs, love and God... brought us together. FAMILY IS EVERYTHING.. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise...

    I am humbled and thankful and uplifted by this peace!!

    it's beautiful!!! Djere jef! (thank you)

    Yes the conversations between mom and I have become less...again but I ain't givin up...there's more drama...not with us but...her and my younger sister who's not turning to me...but I ain't givin up.

    that's my momma...and i love her no matter what pain the past has caused me.

    Again...thank you for this. Didn't know I had a pal in you!

    :heart:
