COMPASSION

It’s been awhile. God revealed to me a while back that my passion to write was something I needed to continue and pursue. So, on my own, I have. And every time I write, I smile. But…there are always “buts” Drops of self-doubt and selfish pursuits leak in my mind.  I write because I enjoy […]

Seeing the image of my brain…  damaged…  was emotional.  Feeling the effects and hearing all the wrong words coming out of my own mouth is hard enough.  But actually seeing evidence of what happened brought me to tears.
