I don’t know where you are. I have no recollection of your name. Five, six years have passed from the last time our paths crossed. Today, you are a young lady. You are becoming a young lady. When you were a child, you were so precious. So joyful. So loving. You always wanted to be held. You were curious. You were happy. I know your home life was a mess. A complete mess. You saw things, no child should have to see. You heard things, no child should have to hear. But through it all, you continued to smile. THANK YOU. Thank you for bringing such joy into my life. Thank you for allowing me to help you, love you, and share God’s truth with you. Today, wherever you may be, please remember, you are, you always will be, LOVED! No matter the pain and hurt you are experiencing in this moment, no matter the suffering you have been forced to endure, you are LOVED! You are a beautiful, peaceful, compassionate, resilient soul. YOU ARE LOVED!
