Oh to fly away

“If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.”

So I said, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest.

    You forgot – grateful to have my best friend/sister I never had – right beside me every step of the way ☺

  4. Oh my sweet, sweet little Georgia Peach. This is sooooo full of sadness and so I just couldn’t it the like button. What you are going through is so very hard, and I so wish I were there to help in someone if nothing else but to have a hug and a drink waiting at the door when you got home. As you walk through each trying and difficult day and moment, just keep telling yourself, “this too shall pass, this too shall pass, this too shall pass…” Much love and huge, huge hugs to my little sad and grey cookie!!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

    • Natalie—I got home late last night, having been so upset after a very frustrating day, and read your words and absolutely lost it–no one has ever said such sweet, and needed, words to me—thank you so much–it was a much needed hug from afar. . .

      • You are just so very welcome. I know how very hard this is. I went through a nightmarish end to my mother’s life, not only with her, but with my two sisters. It’s a long and ugly story that I try not to remember these days, but the sting of it is still harsh and I remember all to well the sense of betrayal by people I trusted and who were not supposed to turn against me. Like I said I just wish I were close enough to be some real help. I’d even be willing to tag along with you to these “meetings.” Take care, sweet lady, this too shall pass, and the bad guys do get their just desserts if not in this world then one day when they come before the Lord. Love you dearly, my sweet Peachy Poo. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤
