These poems were written during tremendous trials in my life but being that I walked through them with Christ, I came out on the other side of sorrow. If I can help just one person get through challenging events through my experience then I have accomplished what I set out to do. My husband, Tommy, the illustrator of this book is the love of my life and the one who encouraged me to finally put what was in my heart down on paper. I have to thank my sister in law, Eileen, for typing all this when I could not and my sister, Sue, and her husband, Bob, who brought me through a devastating transistional period. And my five children? They're the best!
